This Minnesota Wild Prospect Even Impressed Himself With This Crazy Shootout Goal

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.
