Watch Shea Weber score from the upper deck

You know how most teams have some kind of intermission gimmick where a fan comes onto the ice and launches a puck from the opposite end of the rink trying to get it in the net? It is often a challenge. Even with no defense to speak of, a lot of fans don't score.

It can be tough for All-Stars like Predators defenseman Shea Weber too ... when you add a few thousands seats into the equation as well.

Weber recently took to the stands of Bridgestone Arena in Nashville to attempt an empty-netter ... from Section 317. Alongside country singer Dierks Bentley (if you are as Country music illiterate as I am, here you go).

After he fires the shot, Weber laments that it's too far right, but he gets an awfully friendly bounce -- shall we say, a member's roll? -- and it kicks just enough toward the goal to hit the side of the post and scoot in.

Next I want to see him bank it off the video screen and into the near-side goal. I just hope for Bentley's sake that it wasn't a game of HORSE.

Watch Shea Weber score from the upper deck

Four pucks laying by the net, one in five is still a great shot. You have to wonder sometimes how many times these kids try each shot with the basketball trick shot videos on Youtube. Nothing better to do than try each shot hundreds of times.
