By now, you know of Patrick Kane's legendary stickhandling skills. The Chicago Blackhawks winger's dangles are the maddest; when it comes to the puck, he's a totalitarian -- he has complete control.

As evidence, we turn to a new commercial Kane cut with Bauer, showing off the sort of thing you can do with their new Vapor stick. Well, the thing he can do. You can't do this.

Good Lord. I'd have lost the puck, fallen down and chipped my tooth on another puck within seconds. This is absurd.

Amazingly, this only took about 15 to 20 minutes to film. "At first I didn't think I was going to be able to do it with all the pucks in there," Kane told Chris Kuc. But "you get competitive."

Which means that, yes, what you're witnessing isn't camera trickery or CGI or some such other thing. It's just Patrick Kane being amazing.

Well, "except for the end part where it breaks the camera." Thanks for your honesty, bud.
