    It takes strength and creativity for a player to put a puck between his legs and fire it into a net for a breakaway goal.

    Forward Viktor Crus Rydberg of HC Vita Hasten (Allsvenskan) showed both in a recent shootout goal. Take a look at the above video of the 2013 New York Islanders fifth-round draft pick (136th overall) with the score.

    How does this compare to the standard of between-the-legs breakaway goals?

    Here is a video of Tomas Hertl on Cam Talbot from 2013.

    Last season Crus Rydberg, 20, notched 45 points in 55 games with the Ontario Hockey League’s Plymouth Whalers. He played seven games with the American Hockey League’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers in 2013-14 where he was held pointless.
