Vladimir Putin Plays Hockey

HE SHOOTS (Poorly)

HE SCORES (They Let Him)

5/12/2014 6:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Vladimir Putin took some time away from riding horses and being scary ... to strap on some skates and hit the ice for a celebrity hockey game in Russia ... and shocker, THEY LET HIM SCORE!!

Putin, sporting the #11 jersey, played for the red team (naturally) during something called the "All-Russia Festival of Night Hockey League" in Sochi. 

Russia's 62-year-old leader lined up with former NHL stars Viacheslav Fetisov and Pavel Bure -- to take on other famous Russian people who were probably way too scared to check Putin into the boards. 

According to reports, Putin had the game of his life -- chalking up 6 goals and 5 assists ... in what seemed like a giant team effort to make him feel good about himself.

Putin is the Man. And as far as goals scored: It was a "show". Putin joked about it after the game interview.

Putin is a war monger that caused unnecessary deaths in the Ukraine.
