How's this for awesome? After the Buffalo Sabres pulled off a blockbuster deal to send goaltender Ryan Miller to St. Louis, they had a void at the position and were forced to have the team's former video scout, Ryan Vinz, suit up for Friday's game against the Sharks.
This has gotta be the fastest ascension to glory for a video guy since Erik Spoelstra went from cuttin' tape to winning championships with LeBron as the coach of the Miami Heat.
The 28-year-old Vinz, who had no college or professional playing experience, didn't see any action on Friday as he rode the pine, but he had the best seat in the house to watch the Sabres top the Sharks, 4-2.
Then this happened:
