Trevor Zegras is a bad, bad man.
First, it was his alley-oop pass over the net to assist on one of the NHL’s most creative plays in the modern era back in December. Now? It’s a gorgeous lacrosse goal that will go down as yet another highlight-reel play for the young Anaheim Ducks forward.
On Thursday, Zegras pulled off this lacrosse goal — or The Michigan or The Svechnikov, however you want to call it — on poor Montreal Canadiens goaltender Sam Montembeault in the early stages of the second period. With the Ducks up 3-1, Zegras took the puck behind the net, brought it up onto his stick, then deposited it into the net with a quick flick of his wrist, all in stride and at full speed.
Seriously, this is a thing of beauty.

What a goal from a talented young player that is set to be the future of the NHL. Hockey 100 percent needs more players like Zegras and this goal shows us exactly why.
