11 Year Old Wins $50,000


Last night in Faribault, Minnesota, home of Shattuck St. Mary’s school, a celebrity hockey game was held.  The game featured a good number of current National Hockey League players including Zach Parise, a Shattuck alum.  But Parise and the rest of the stars were upstaged by 11 year old Nick Smith of Owattona.  Smith paid $10 for a chance to have his name randomly drawn and to take a shot from 89 feet away.  His target was three and half inches wide and the prize was $50,000.  Keeping in mind that the puck itself is three inches wide, Nick calmly slid a wrist shot down the ice and through the small opening.

For $50,000.

Nick is heading into the 6th grade at Owatonna and plays pee wee hockey there.  And is well on his way to a nice career.
