While the young hockey prodigy has taken the opportunity to show off his puck-handling skills by performing lacrosse-style maneuvers during shootout competitions between periods at the TD Gardens, Alex Mason of Detroit Lakes High School is busy performing the even more difficult backhand lacrosse-style maneuver during an actual game while killing a penalty.

The move is impressive, but I must admit, I am equally impressed with the camera work and multiple replay angles provided during this high school hockey game.  Perhaps they knew something special was about to take place…

And they were right!  Check it out.
