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.
