Vladimir Putin Plays Hockey -- HE SHOOTS (Poorly), HE SCORES (Because They Let Him)

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. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
