Patrick Kane already had established himself as one of the top stickhandlers in the league with his jaw-dropping shootout moves. But his ridiculously quick hands became an Internet sensation on Friday when a Bauer commercial featuring him went viral. The video shows Kane speedily stickhandling his way through an increasing amount of randomly strewn pucks, all without touching any of them with the puck, his stick or his skates.
Kane said the 90-second video took about 15 or 20 minutes to film.
“At first, I didn’t think I was going to be able to do it with all the pucks in there,” he said. “But as you get into, it you get competitive, you want to try it out. It was pretty cool. … To see the final product was awesome.”
The only part that was faked was the end, where Kane flings the puck and hits the camera.
“Other than that it was all me,” he said.
