St Louis Blues coach Craig Berube reveals the EMBARRASSING way he chooses his shootout shooters

The National Hockey League has many coaches all of which operate in different ways with different systems.

In recent years, the shootout has become a lot more strategic than in past years and coaches usually have a strategy for it.

Some go with the players who have had a 'hot touch' lately, and some just go with players who have historically had success.

Well, then there is the St. Louis Blues and their head coach who has a very unique way of choosing.


During a media conference, he was asked about how he chooses his shooters and he gives the best answer ever:

We got... ummm...a hat, with names in it on the bench and I get Otter to pull them out one at a time.



Later he did admit that they look at data, but atleast he had a good sense of humour.

But if you think about it, every player in the National Hockey League was a scorer at one point in their career, so you really can't go wrong with a shooter.
