OK, kids, don't try this at home! But if you're a professional hockey player, go right ahead!

Minnesota Wild defenseman Anthony Bitetto lost his stick in a game against the Nashville Predators Sunday.

Teammate and forward Kevin Fiala who was also a teammate when the two played for the Preds, was looking out for his buddy.

A well-timed flick of his hockey stick by Fiala, combined with an equally well-timed catch of the same stick by Bitetto was as smooth as silk, and Bitetto got possession of the puck right away.

Sadly for the two teammates, the Preds took the game, 3-2.
