We’ve all seen some pretty nice shootout goals over the years, but this one from 17-year old Alexsander Barkov definitely will go down as one of the top five of all-time.

Barkov eventually starts skating backwards and uses some fancy stick work in his shootout attempt in a game Saturday in the Finnish Elite League.

Just for the record, he is eligible for the NHL draft this year.

  1. Top 5 of all time!??? Bahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Next breakaway in beer league I’ll pull that pee-wee shit. Goalie bought the farm on his poke check. If he just sits there its an easy save.

  2. yeah, I’m going to have to call BS on top five all time. Completely underwhelmed by the goal.

    Skating backwards doesn’t make a simple deke an amazing goal.

    MEH.

  3. Forward progress?! How is that allowed?
    24.2 Procedure – The Referee shall ask to have announced over the public address system the name of the player designated by him or selected by the team entitled to take the shot (as appropriate). He shall then place the puck on the center face-off spot and the player taking the shot will, on the instruction of the Referee (by blowing his whistle), play the puck from there and shall attempt to score on the goalkeeper. The puck must be kept in motion towards the opponent’s goal line and once it is shot, the play shall be considered complete. No goal can be scored on a rebound of any kind (an exception being the puck off the goal post or crossbar, then the goalkeeper and then directly into the goal), and any time the puck crosses the goal line or comes to a complete stop, the shot shall be considered complete.
