Fatima Al Ali of Abu Dhabi first caught the eye of Peter Bondra for her awesome stickhandling skills. She showed those skills off at Kettler Capitals Iceplex on Tuesday and some players and coaches had a hard time keeping up.
"At first, my nose was out of joint because a few guys told me that she had way better skill that I did," Barry Trotz said, "And I'm on the ice probably a lot more than her so that hurt at first."
But Trotz was in good company.
When Al Ali showed the players how she picks the puck up on her stick, not even Alex Ovechkin himself could replicate it.
"It's hard to do any tricks out there," Ovechkin said. "I was tired and she was not so good for her."
