On Friday night, the East Coast Musicians hockey team was set to face off with the Canso Academy (Nova Scotia) students and staff for a fundraiser game to benefit the school.

During the event, there were three opportunities to hit a shot from just beyond center ice to win $5,000. One chance was taken by 9-year old Tyson Greencorn, who plays for Canso's atom squad.

Tyson's shot started off not the way he wanted, by slipping just as he released the puck, but the ending was perfect:

Did the little slip actually help him? We may never know. But he's now a local legend in Canso, and also a tad bit richer.

So what's a 9-year old boy to do with $5,000?
