The best goal of the season and the assist of the year may have come in the same game when the Ducks met Tuesday night with the Buffalo Sabers.
About five minutes into the second period, Anaheim rookie Trevor Zegras held the puck behind the net and was looking for a way to give it to teammate Sonny Milano. With the impression that the side of the net was covered by full-back striker Rasmus Asplund, the a talented recruit decided to go the only other way.
Again and again, that is to say.
Zegras wrapped the puck on the blade of his “Michigan Style” stick and flipped it over the net to Milano who finished the beautiful flat by hitting him in the air and into the cage.
As you can imagine, hockey fans have gone completely crazy when they saw it.
it’s just another feather in the hat of what has been a very impressive rookie campaign from Zegras. With magic help, the 20-year-old now has eight points in his last four games and 22 points in 25 outings this season.
