WASHINGTON — Barry Trotz is 54 years old, but he’s still got some moves.
Watch him make goalie Braden Holtby, one of the best in the league at his position, look silly with this slick deke in practice. (Video courtesy of Russian Machine Never Breaks.)
Not bad for an older fella.
He was asked about the move when he joined The Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan for his weekly visit Wednesday morning.
“Well, you know, usually there’s one drill that we do that we play it off the backboard and any rebounds that come to me, the guys have fun with it and it’s up to me to try to put the rebound in. Once in awhile a blind dog will find a bone, and that’s one of them. Actually, I think I was gonna shoot, but my hands weren’t working so I decided to deke, and I think it totally caught Holts off guard. But at the same time, I think he probably was nice and let me score anyways.”
