I’m actually more impressed by the footwork than the hands. I can fathom working on hand/eye coordination to the point where you can puck handle through those pucks, but to also not bump one or step on one with your skate just out of instinct seems like the super hard part.

I actually think some of those pucks are CG.  I’m sure others thought it, I’ll say it.

The first “drill” with the ring and 4 pucks looks legit.  Though I guess theoretically some of them in the outer ring could be CG’d in still (if they were it’d be irrelevant).  Nothing looks terribly “funny” with it though.

There’s a funny effect though when it starts to add pucks, where when a puck should be passing behind him it just… doesn’t look quite right.  And his body language doesn’t look like he’s even having to try to not kick them, like he doesn’t care or is even worried about them.  That may be because they’re not actually there in the first place and the pucks are placed in AFTERWARDS via CG.  I also find the shadows (or lack thereof in most instances) to be a tip off of something being up.

These type of spots very often end up being CG’d (remember Mike Vick throwing a football out of a stadium?).  This one has all the hallmarks of a ‘shopped video.  My guess is that maybe half the pucks are CG’d in.

Dangles does that better with five-pound weights on his stick.
