Linus Klasen Scores A Shootout Beauty (Video)
Had he done this a few months earlier, you can bet Linus Klasen would have found himself on this list of the top shootout innovations. Unfortunately he didn’t, but better late than never!
During a Swedish Elite League game last night, Sodertalje’s leading scorer stepped up against Frolunda goaltender Johan Holmqvist and made the former NHLer wish he had the night off. Curling in from the right wing, Klasen pulled the puck through his legs, cut back across the goal, and buried the puck into the open net as Holmqvist found himself sliding way out of position.
The goal put smiles on the faces of his teammates, as they too enjoy the sight of a beautiful shootout goal. Especially when it is a member of their team scoring it.
