Trevor Zegras adds to absurd highlight reel with slick between-the-legs goal
The Anaheim Ducks didn’t make their fans too happy in the 2022-2023 season as the team had already set their sights on the Connor Bedard prank.
Trevor Zegras is still a player to watch whenever he’s on the ice, and the 21-year-old scored one of the best goals of his young career in a 5-2 loss to the Seattle Cracken on Tuesday.
Less than a minute into the second period, Zegras received a nifty pass from teammate Ryan Strome in the offensive zone and then landed a terrific shot between the legs to block Seattle goaltender Philip Grubauer for his team. leading 21st goal of the season.
Such moves are nothing new for Zegras. The Bedford, New York native has already racked up a slew of style points in his three NHL seasons, most notably scoring Michigan last season to continue what should be considered one of the greatest passes of all time as he pitched. the puck over the net to Sonny Milano for a mid-air one-shot.
Zegras also breathed new life into the Breakaway Challenge at the 2022 NHL All-Star Game with a blindfolded spinning goal.
The 2019 No. 9 pick is having another productive year for the Ducks and is on track to set new career highs in both goals and points.
Anaheim is currently seventh in the Pacific Division with 50 points in 64 games. If the Ducks remain in place in the standings, they will have 9.5% chance get the first pick in the 2023 draft this June.
The Ducks returned on Wednesday in an away game against the Canucks, one of their rivals in the race for Bedard. Let’s see what Zegras has in store for the encore.
