The Worst Shootout Attempt In Hockey History Has Been Caught On Camera

Imagine the kind of moment that haunts hockey players in their nightmares, the kind that jolts you awake in a cold sweat.

A video circulating on social media captures what might be the epitome of the worst shootout attempt in history.

While details about the location and teams involved are not clear, both the Philadelphia Flyers and the Lehigh Valley Phantoms logos are displayed in the arena. In the video, a player takes his turn in the shootout but barely manages to cross the blue line. Trouble begins well before reaching the blue line, with the player losing his balance awkwardly. This has one of the most embarrassing moment I've ever seen as the player hilariously plummets to the ice in a comical fashion.

Even before reaching the faceoff circles, he finds himself face-first on the ice, with one leg sticking straight up into the air after an utterly disastrous shootout attempt.

The way he aggressively planted himself into the ice, it's almost as if he was trying to grow a hockey tree.
