Zdeno Chara with tallest spin-o-rama goal in NHL history (we assume)

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara has been a consistent scorer during his NHL career, but not someone known for Datsyukian feats of stickhandling grandeur.

That is, until Sunday, when Chara unleashed a spin-o-rama against the Florida Panthers to set up his third goal of the season.

Jack Edwards: “SIX NINE AND HE’S A BALLERINA!”

We eagerly await Chara’s casting in the sequel to “Black Swan”, likely titled “Black and Gold Pterodactyl”...

We assume Chara is the tallest player to ever successfully use a spin-o-rama for a goal in the NHL. But that’s pretty much by default, given that most other giants of the blue line are pylons in the defensive zone. Your move, Tyler Myers.
