Well, that was unexpected. Not to mention spectacular.

Buffalo Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen went deep into the bag of tricks to score during Friday’s shootout victory over the Anaheim Ducks, pulling off the famous Peter Forsberg move on goalie Jonathan Bernier.

He did so in the ninth round of the shootout. The Sabres won the game on a successful attempt from Zemgus Girgensons in the 10th round.
