So, this was Paul Ranger’s shootout attempt Saturday.

And yes, there was a distinct kicking motion, as he tried to propel the puck off his stick using his foot.Sabres’ goalie Jhonas Enroth didn’t seem too impressed (quote below).

The attempt was unsuccessful - as were an additional 28 others, as the skills competition went to the 15th round with only one goal - but brought a laugh out of the Leafs’ players and coaches.

Interesting thing about Ranger is he’s actually shown decent offensive ability in the past, like when he scored 10 goals and had 31 points with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2007-08.
