By Adam Carter, NewsRadio 830 WCCO

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A hockey player from Shoreview is making news, thanks to some incredible video and an even more incredible shot.

Nineteen-year old Andrew Prochno, who played hockey at Minnetonka High School, split the puck in two with a slap shot off the pipe during a game Wednesday night with the Sioux Falls Stampede of the USHL.

Check out the video below:

Flawed puck? Maybe.

But quite a feat for a guy who’s listed as 5 feet, 11 inches and 172 pounds. After juniors, he’ll play his hockey at St. Cloud State University.

    I guess not enough people play hockey outside anymore, we used to do this regularly when I was a kid.

    It is so sad that our kids are being so wusafied and have to play inside at practice and games and thats it.when i was a kid i went to school ,home,had a snack and off to the outdoor rink till 9.I have some of the best memories of playing outside.I drive by the outdoor rinks these days and they are empty because kids would rather sit inside and play video games

    Al Shaver, former announcer for the Minnesota North Stars, did a trivia style program on the radio years ago. One topic he dealt with was this exact situation where the puck hit the upright pipe on the goal and split in two equal pieces. Half of the puck went into the goal and the other half did not. According to NHL rules more than half of the puck must enter the net to count as a score. In that case only half of the puck crossed the line and the goal did not count.
