9yr old scores amazing hockey goal
 
eat your heart out Sid...

abc12 03-20-2010 02:59 PM

would you actually be allowed to do that in the NHL or will it be looked down upon from others?

325isdan 03-20-2010 03:18 PM

is that not considered high sticking?

koncise 03-20-2010 05:08 PM

No, it's not high-sticking because his stick is under the crossbar when he "shoots" the puck.

You're allowed to do that in any league, but I don't think it's ever been attempted outside of all-star games/competitions.

Intresting. However I'm sure if it goes any higher in the leagues it would be outlawed.

Seen it, not 100% sure if it was posted on this forum but I think, and again, I think its a possible repost.

I don't see why it would be outlawed, it's not breaking any rules.

because it takes a huge amount of skill, the players who suck would whine and complain. Not to mention goalies.

Fel 03-21-2010 09:33 PM

^^I don't recall anything being outlawed in a sport simply because it takes too much skill to perform.

That's a pretty impressive shot, especially for a 9 year old. Although I can only imagine seeing something like that in a shootout. Would be a lot harder to pull off with a defender on you.

First time I remember seeing this kind of trick shot performed was on a wraparound goal in the ncaa playoffs.



So yeah.

Too lazy to find it, but Crosby did that already. The kid copied him. I don't know if it was in an actual shootout or just a promo vid or something, but I know I've seen Sid do it. Maybe on a Gatorade commercial or something lol...

Personally, I think that stuff is ok at the all-star game/skills comp (as in the vid), but I think a lot of die-hard NHL players/commentators look down on that hot-dog, Mighty Ducks Disney type shit if/when players try it in real games.

Uh... the video I posted was from 1996. Crosby, this kid, and everybody else copied Mike Legg...

The goal was widely recognized around the hockey world; Legg was awarded "Goal of the Year" by Inside Hockey and the stick he used was donated to the Hockey Hall of Fame.[1] This move is often referred to as a 'Michigan' or 'Lacrosse Move' (because of its origins in lacrosse), and has since been attempted by many other players, including Sidney Crosby.

I meant that exact same move, spin, backhand and all, which the kid most likely got from Crosby. This kid probably has never heard of Mike Legg.

probably wouldn't work as often as you think in the nhl. goalies are much much bigger and faster.
