Obi-Wan Kenobi doesn’t have anything on Zac Bell. If the teenaged Canadian had been born on the ice planet Hoth, his hockey-stick twirling skills would have likely secured him a coveted spot as a lightsaber-wielding Jedi Master or Sith Lord.

As it is, Bell has had to content himself with creating epic stick-trick videos for posting to YouTube and Instagram. Still, one has to wonder, what Bell could have accomplished fighting side-by-side with Darth Maul.

Aside from his dazzling acrobatics with the hockey stick, Bell also sports deadeye aim. In a video posted to Instagram, Bell slaps the puck into a ball perched atop a hockey stick propped up against the goal.

Bell is also adept at using his stick and puck in a manner reminiscent of taiji bailong ball. Check out how the puck appears to defy gravity in adhering to the stick.

Bell’s stick-handling skills aren’t limited to mucking about with pucks. He can also make magic with a street hockey ball.
