Watch Maris Dilevka’s nifty shootout attempt in Belarusian Extraleague (VIDEO)

Maris Dilevka is a 20-year old winger for HK Liepājas Metalurgs of the Belarusian Extraleague. Last week, their game against Neman Grodno needed a shootout after overtime failed to produce a goal to break the 2-2 tie.

Through four rounds, each team had scored once, and then up stepped Dilevka, who decided to get a little fancy:

That sort of reminds you of Jori Lehtera's attempt during the KHL All-Star Game earlier this month, though it appears Dilevka genuinely was looking to finish on the backhand and was fortunate the puck was moving at a favorable angle to go into the net on its own.

That would end up being the winning tally as HK Liepājas Metalurgs would grab the 3-2 win.

Between this shootout attempt by and Alex Burrows' last night, let's hope players continue to get more and more creative as opposed to the old skate, skate, backhand, forehand, shoot into pads.
