I know this is a year old and wasn't sure if this was ever mentioned on this site. This kid plays high school hockey at my old high school in NJ (Edison High School)and I thought it was just an awesome goal that he shot inspired by playing lacrosse. Someone put the shot on YouTube and the kid got famous with calls from News 12, Yahoo, ESPN, and even got to meet Jeremy Roenick on Versus. Here are two videos below...

bet if more people try it, there'll be a rule against it. It's cool, just he's technically guilty of playing the puck with a high stick cause he goes over hand with it and the stick comes up above his shoulders, and then somehow uses the stick to "throw" it lacrosse style. I'd be more afraid (at the pro level where they don't use facemasks) of getting smacked in the face with the puck if his aim is off. That'd have to cause injury.

Would that be damn close to being above the crossbar? Still pretty nice though.

Hes getting so much credit for scoring it but the goalie was only playing net for a few months. He's a good friend of mine and he was a forward when I was playing . And the D should've stepped up if you watch the video that someone made at the game you can pause it and see the defencemens stick is like 2 inches from the puck and a little poke would've stopped the whole thing lol

I played against the kid for years in high school. It was a sick shot but he never scored goals on good teams. The goalie he scored that goal on played hockey for like 2 years at that point. Really nice kid though and a great player

Meh, isn't anyone else tired of the "lacrosse" style goals yet? The first time I saw that move years ago I thought it was kind of cool, but it's seriously getting old.

Wasn't the game a blowout at this point? I'm surprised nobody from Colonia kicked his ass after that. Also I seriously can not believe how popular he got for this. I know so many people that can do this, especially against a team like Colonia (no offense). This stuff just isn't that impressive, it just takes a little bit of practice.

Huh? Why would they?

Sick goal, but not likely to catch on as it will be impossible to do with anyone trying to defend it at a high level. All though, we may see more lacrosse style plays in the future.. Like Granlunds goal for Finland against Russia in the world cup.

Just to clarify, high sticking is no longer about your shoulder, it's now about the crossbar height. So to be guilty of high sticking on a goal like this the puck itself would need to be higher than the crossbar, since it's all about the point of contact between the stick on the puck for waiving a goal off.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Because it's an unsportsmanlike showboat move, especially in a blowout.
