With hockey during the 2014 Winter Olympics in full swing, we're continuing to see some exciting highlight plays, but this might be one of the more entertaining highlights from the games so far.

Slovakian goalie Jan Laco accidentally lost the puck behind the net during a game against Russia. Instead of scrambling to get the puck back, Laco decided to stop the opponent from getting the puck by pulling off an impressive "butt check".

Despite helping shut out the Russians for 65 minutes, Laco was unable to help lead Slovakia to a win, as the Russians won in a shootout.
