Johnny Gaudreau, a.k.a. Johnny Hockey, is putting up video-game-like points in the IIHF world championships in Minsk, Belarus, with 10 points in his first seven games. So it’s only natural that the Calgary Flames' top prospect pulled off a video game move vs. Germany on Tuesday.
Here’s Gaudreau with one of the sickest, dangle-riffic goals of 2014:
And the video:
The play was briefly reviewed because the officials couldn’t believe how incredibly awesome it was. Or because the puck went in and out of the net so quickly. One of the two.

Gaudreau was the 2014 winner of the Hobey Baker Award and won gold with the U.S. in world juniors in 2013. He made his debut for Calgary this season, scoring on his first shot of his first professional game.
The US is now 4-2-1 in the tournament. The quarterfinals begin on Thursday.
As we've always said: Johnny Hockey > Johnny Football. He just needs to come up with a cool hand sign like that the Money Manziel Move.
