2014 Winter Olympics: Jan Laco butt checks Alexei Tereshchenko

Slovakia hasn't had too much to celebrate during the men's Olympic hockey tournament, but goaltender Jan Laco has been one bright spot to rally around. Called on to start in the country's third game of the competition, Laco stood strong and was narrowly defeated by Russia 1-0 in a shootout. 

Despite his strong effort in net, it was a play he was involved in behind the net which still has hockey fans chuckling. 

Meet the butt check:

Russia's Alexei Tereshchenko didn't know what hit him. Laco received a two-minute interference penalty on the play.
