Yes, yes he did. What an absolute freak show this kid is. I tried pulling this off in peewees once. Behind the net, tons of wax on my stick, eyes glued down at the puck. I was promptly run over by some refrigerator that hit puberty before I even knew that my manly parts could do more than just drain my bladder.
Andrei Svechnikov though? He doesn’t even need help from a sticky substance to pick up the puck. Kid just scoops it like he’s pulling out a pepperoni pie on a lazy Tuesday night shift down at Bertuccis. In an NHL game against the worlds best, nonetheless. And ya, he did it a few weeks ago too.
