Watch: Czech player makes extremely generous assist

Suffice it to say the world would be a much better place if we were all as unselfish as this guy.

They say you should always shoot your shot, but Michal Vondrka did just the opposite during a recent Czech Extraliga contest — giving up a sure goal to assure teammate Roman Chlouba could pad his stats just a little bit.

With Pirati Chomutov leading 1-0 and the opposition’s netminder pulled for the extra attacker,  Vondrka pounced on a turnover at centre and busted in on a breakaway toward the open cage. The captain then did as captains do, screeched to a dead stop at the top of the crease before leaving the puck for Chloubovi, who graciously deposited the post-Christmas offering for his sixth tally of the season.

Find someone who likes assists more than goals, and never let them go.
