Hit It Down The Ice

from Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal,

Several seasons ago, Dwayne Roloson watched Dominik Hasek bat a puck into the air and down the ice.  Hmmmm, thought the apprentice, that move just might come in handy one day.
The head coach of the Edmonton Oilers thought otherwise.
“I, like everybody else, was in shock—until I questioned him on it,” coach Craig MacTavish said as he looked back on the first time he saw Roloson’s unorthodox puck-clearing move.  “He assured me it’s a tactic that he’s perfected.”
