Enlisted US army soldier makes near-impossible snipe to win Mercedes-Benz

Talk about a going away present.

The Springfield Thunderbirds of the AHL gave a lucky fan the chance to win a Mercedes-Benz car during intermission. The challenge was to snipe a puck into a minuscule hole in the net, with two blue lines and the red line separating them from the goal.

Recently enlisted into the United States army, Nate Vila was afforded the opportunity prior to reporting for training.

He succeeded on his first attempt.

It isn't too hard to imagine what his specialty might be for the army. 

Thank you for your service.
