Vladimir Putin is a scoring machine on the ice -- but there's a catch

Posted: Updated:

Russian President Vladimir Putin is unstoppable on the ice. Sort of.

The 61-year-old Russian leader participated in an amateur hockey league exhibition game in Sochi and scored six -- count 'em, six! -- goals. He also racked up five assists in the game, which his team won 21-4.

All of that sounds pretty impressive. But then, Putin's scoring was aided by the fact that his opponents erred on the safe side and chose minimal marking.

The game was part of a hockey festival for the Night Hockey League, an amateur league that allows Russian hockey players who work during the day an opportunity to play some evening hockey.
