HEARTLANDER HERKY

About the Herky

As the puck drops on center ice at Xtreme Arena, the center and wingers work the puck up and down the ice in attempts to put goals up on the scoreboard. Offsides, icing, delay of game, and other penalties are called. None of these stop the Heartlanders from scoring goal after goal!

The defenders do a great job protecting the house but it all comes down to Heartlander Herky not being a sieve. He defends shot after shot to all corners of the net as well as the five hole. With a final shot on goal and the horn buzzing he’s done it again and defends his goal for a SHUT OUT!

After the game, Heartlander Herky removes his helmet to show off his great flow and the puck in his glove as the crowd goes wild.
