Russian President Vladimir Putin only recently started playing hockey, but the 62-year-old already has some serious skills on the ice.

While playing in an exhibition game in Sochi, Russia, Putin scored eight goals to help lead his team to an 18-6 win. Former NHL players Pavel Bure and Valeri Kamensky joined Putin and helped set him up for some easy goals.

This makes me want to watch a pickup basketball game with all of the former U.S. presidents.
