Recently, a throwback video of Derek Roy of the St. Louis Blues from the 2013 season provided one of those special moments in a TikTok video posted by ESPN NHL. The video has been viewed nearly 300,000 times, and it's easy to see why. The video starts off with a seemingly mundane play, with Roy attempting to clear the puck out of the defensive zone. However, things take a funny turn when Roy's stick gets caught in the boards. Suddenly, everyone on the ice, including Roy himself, is trying to help get the stick out of the boards. After a few failed attempts, Roy finally gets his stick free, to the amusement of his teammates and the viewers of the video.
