Russian President Vladimir Putin did something amazing during an exhibition hockey game Saturday night — something so rare that no National Hockey League player has ever accomplished it: He scored eight goals in one game. 

Putin's team, which included a few retired NHL pros, easily won the contest, 18–6.

The exhibition game, held at the Olympic hockey arena in Sochi, is part of an annual event marking Putin's night hockey initiative started four years ago.

Putin's hockey prowess first came to the world's attention after his election win in 2012, when he scored the game-winning goal on a penalty shot.

Watch the highlights showing Putin in action (and understand this video has not been slowed down — it's the actual speed of play).
