Hockey prospect camps remain in full effect this week, as young players in the development leagues show off some of the skills that made a lot of them an early-round draft pick. Last week, we showed you two Carolina Hurricanes prospects, Sergey Tolchinsky and Haydn Fleury, showcasing some ridiculous stick-handling that resulted in a bit of embarrassment on the part of the opposing goalie. On Tuesday, it was Alex Tuch of the Minnesota Wild’s turn.
During the shootout of a team scrimmage, Tuch flashed some of the ability that made him the No. 18 pick in the 2014 NHL Draft by first passing to himself between his legs, avoiding a goalie stick, then flashing some patience that allowed himself what ended up looking like an easy shot on a wide-open net.
He even impressed himself with the move, as he finished up the play with a high-step celebration that we can only hope will soon be sweeping the nation.
