Yeah. If you could accelerate it to anywhere near the speed of a shot hockey puck, the results shown are not too unreasonable, but there's no way a 200 lb. hockey player could take a fluid slapshot and accelerate that stone to anywhere that speed that quickly.

Hockey curling stone

Exactly. It's a bit much. Curling stones are the heavy.
You can't slide a curling stone on hockey ice, either. The ice has to be pebbled, so air can get between under the running band, allowing the rock slide and curl. With no pebble, a curling rock becomes a 44 pound suction cup.
