A recent viral goal from a young hockey player only serves to emphasise how clearly it appears that young athletes are becoming better and more gifted as time goes on.
A teenage hockey player was on a breakaway with just the opposition
goaltender to beat in a video that was posted to Twitter.
At that point, he scored the goal that has since become famous by pulling off an incredibly incredible move.
The young player pretends to cut in front of the goalie and
shoot to the left side of the net when he is one on one with the goalie.
The goaltender shifts to protect that side of the goal after fully understanding it.
But after the goaltender shifted out of the way, the attacking player
purposefully left the puck behind, enabling it to gently dribble into the open goal.
