New York slugger nets goal during intermission of Blackhawks game

Curtis Granderson of the New York Yankees scores a goal during intermission for the Blackhawks-Flames game. 2:29

If Curtis Granderson swings and misses in his first taste of MLB free agency, he may have a potential suitor in the Chicago Blackhawks if Sunday night was any indication. 

During the second intermission of a Shoot the Puck event of Chicago's 3-2 overtime loss to the Calgary Flames, the New York Yankees slugger scored a goal from centre ice to win a round-trip airline ticket.

After missing on his first attempt wide right, he calmly shot the puck into the tiny opening to the Chicago crowd's delight. 

Remember when Mr. T accomplished a similar feat? 

Watch the video above to see how it unfolded.
