During a game against South Africa, Sherbatov found himself alone on a break-away when he decided to attempt a “back-between-your-legs-flip-it-up-and-poke-it-in-from-mid-air” maneuver. It worked to perfection. Sherbatov, who is currently playing in the QMJHL with the Baie-Comeau Drakkar added another five goals and eight assists during a 26-2 romp of the South Africans. They would also go on to beat Luxembourg, Turkey and Greece, en route to the championship.
So what took us so long to find this video? It wasn’t uploaded onto YouTube until July 9th. That probably has something to do with the fact that few people care about the IIHF Division I World Championships, let alone the D-III Championships.
Here is a look at the goal.
