Watch: Vanek Goes Around the World in Shootout vs. Buffalo


In his second game back from a four-week hiatus due to injury, Thomas Vanek registered an assist and was a plus-1 in Detroit's 2-1 shootout win over the Sabres. He also did this sick (see video above) around-the-world trick before lasering a snapshot past Robin Lehner in the second round of the shootout.

The 32-year-old Vanek missed nearly four weeks with a lower-body injury, but when he has been in he has been good for Detroit. He's produced 9 goals in 9 games. Detroit is 9-10-1 after 20 games, and is currently 14th in the 16-team Eastern Conference (some games still going on here on Thanksgiving Eve).
