This is Patrick Kane, a NHL all-star, Stanley Cup winner with the Chicago BlackHawks and over all just a super human with amazing skills. Bauer recently recruited him for his talents to advertise their newest hockey stick the 'VAPOR APX2'. What happens next is just mind blasting. Watch the video below.
Though they've been teammates for nearly a decade, Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher admitted that even he didn't notice how much Carey Price was struggling and wished he "could've done a little bit more for him."
"There are a lot of emotions [...] I've known him for 10 plus years and any time I've been going through something he's been there to help me and I just kinda wish that I was able to do the same thing for him," Gallagher said at a press conference on Thursday.

Price made the decision to enter the NHL's Player Assistance Program on Thursday, much to the surprise of the Habs organization and hockey fans around the world.
Gallagher commended Price and said that it was "unfair" for him to constantly carry around the weight of expectation.
"It's just such a courageous decision that he made."
"You need to be there for him and he's got a lot of pressure on him outside of hockey, as well [...] We need to be there for him and try to do a better job of reaching out and talking to him."
Gallagher said he hopes Price's decision will bring awareness to unspoken mental health issues and inspire both NHL players and fans to get the help they need.
"I hope Pricey being the role model that he is, this will lead to a lot of people getting help, as well."

At a press conference on Thursday morning, Montreal Canadiens General Manager Marc Bergevin was in tears as he tried to explain what Carey Price meant to him as a person.
Price has taken a leave of absence from the team to join the NHL's Player Assistance Program. In a statement following the announcement, his wife Angela Price said she hopes her family can demonstrate "the importance of putting your mental health first."
After he was asked the question by a journalist, Bergevin paused for a long time to gather his thoughts and said that "it's hard" to see a friend and colleague of nine years struggling.
Bergevin made it clear that Price and his family deserve to go through this in private.
Price is the second Habs player to take a leave in as many years, following his teammate Jonathan Drouin.
Bergevin said that Price would be absent for "30 days or more."
"I think this should make us realize that all players are human beings," the general manager said.
"He will get all our support and we hope to have him back soon."
On October 1, Amazon Prime is coming out with its latest All Or Nothing sports documentary series which will chronicle the 2020-2021 Toronto Maple Leafs season.
And while that's all fine and dandy for the Maple Leafs, some hockey fans have absolutely roasted the Leafs about their new documentary because they've rightfully pointed out that the Leafs end up with, well, nothing.
The memory of the Canadiens' glorious win against their arch-rivals is still fresh in the minds of Habs supporters in Canada and, like some fans have pointed out, it's kind of silly that the Leafs are touting this documentary series when we all know how it ends already.
