Linus Omark adds fire to KHL All-Star shootout
Former NHLer sets stick ablaze, wins on account of creativity
Linus Omark brought some flare to the KHL All-Star shootout competition when he made his second attempt with his stick set on fire.
The former Buffalo Sabres and Edmonton Oilers forward wasn't able to fool the goaltender with either of his approaches, however he was chosen as the winner for his bold effort.
Although Omark failed to "light the lamp" in this case, he did deliver last month with a game on the line.
Playing for Sweden, he scored a beauty in a shootout against Finland in the Channel One Cup.
Omark, 28, last played in the NHL in the 2013-14 season and in 79 career games has totals of eight goals and 24 assists.
