Ah, you're Putin me on with this one.

For his Oct. 7 birthday, the President of the Russian Federation strapped on his skates and took to the ice like a tyrannical zamboni. Vladamir Putin played against NHL stars in Socci and scored a whopping seven goals, leading his team to a 15-10 victory.

So impressive.

Mashable has more details:

The event kicked off the fifth season of Russia's Night Hockey League, and saw Putin playing alongside international hockey legends like Pavel Bure and Vladimir Lutchenko. His team took home victory, beating their opponents 15 to 10.

The opposing team included Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu as well as Putin's close friends — tycoons Gennady Timchenko and Arkady Rotenberg. Both were slapped with Western sanctions last year for their ties to Putin in the wake of Russia's annexation of Crimea.

But Putin was undoubtedly the star of the show, and event went home with a trophy for his team's win at the end and a medal for his contribution to hockey in Russia.

There's no reason at all to question Putin's ability to score seven goals playing against hockey legends.

He's just that good.

This isn't the first time, he's shown such amazing prowess in three periods of play. Just last May, Putin bested his birthday score, by putting eight pucks into the net.

Truly the world of hockey is missing out on a player that would eclipse the great Gretzky.

Here's the highlight reel from Wednesday's game.

As if lion hunters weren't having a bad enough week, now the Terminator's after them.

Joining the growing outrage over the Minnesotan lion-hunting dentist who illegally killed a Zimbabwean lion, Arnold Schwarzenegger took to Instagram July 30. He had a few things to say about the ongoing practice of hunting big cats.

He used the hashtag #5forbigcats drawing attention to a National Geographic donation drive raising money to expand conservation efforts.

Big cats in the wild are disappearing at an alarming rate. In fact, within our lifetime, lions in the wild could disappear forever. In support of World Lion Day (August 10), we're raising money to preserve big cats—like lions—and their habitats through National Geographic's Big Cats Initiative.

Your donation, no matter how small, will make a very real difference in the lives of these majestic creatures. From building livestock enclosures to save snow leopards in Nepal to combating lion snaring and poaching in Zambia, the Big Cats Initiative provides on-the-ground conservation and education support to preserve big cat populations worldwide. 100 percent of your donation supports the fieldwork and expeditions of the Society's scientists and explorers, and our work to share their remarkable discoveries with the world.

Earlier that same day, before using his old body building accolades to define a trophy, he posted another message to big cat hunters on Instagram.

July 30 was also Arnold's birthday. The former governor of California chose to spread a little message against big cat hunting while turning 68 years old.

Appropriately, he's a Leo.
