Hockey goalies have pads, gloves and a stick to protect the net. So the logical conclusion would be that he would have a harder time defending without his stick, right?
It's unlikely that's what Detroit Red Wings prospect Martin Frk was thinking when he took a shot so hard during a Grand Rapids Griffins game, it snapped the goaltender's stick. But that doesn't make it any less impressive.
In fact, with a shot like that, Frk might just be ready for the NHL.
