Russian President Vladimir Putin might be the most dominant hockey player to lace up a pair of skates. The 66-year-old is definitely the most dominant hockey player alive. He proved that on Friday by absolutely dominating a game with 8 goals.

We’re pretty sure it’s his superior hockey skills at work and not the fact that he could have his opponents killed at any time. The one opponent Putin couldn’t beat was a piece of carpet that was placed on the ice.
Russian President Vladimir Putin took a fall as he waved to the crowd during an ice-hockey game in Sochi. He scored eight goals during the exhibition match in what has become a yearly tradition. https://t.co/x0mN62qQoY pic.twitter.com/l6XCRrwsIB

You would think with his high level of ability on his skates that Putin would have easily avoided the carpet. RIP to whoever put that carpet there.
