Missouri Mavericks defenseman Matt Finn went coast-to-coast to score a gorgeous between-the-legs goal Friday against the Wichita Thunder.
The play came late in the third period with the Mavericks on the power play. Finn started up the ice in his own zone, zipped through the Wichita defense and then decided to put the puck between his legs to beat goaltender Drew Owsley for the goal. This put the game at 4-2 in favor of Wichita at the 14:31 mark.
The goal even got the attention of New York Islanders rookie Josh Ho-Sang. The Mavericks are New York’s ECHL affiliate.

Coach John-Scott Dickson called the goal “sick” according to the Waynesville Daily Guide.
Finn has been a decent scoring blue liner at the ECHL level with 45 points in 77 games but hasn’t been able to put it together in the AHL with 17 points in 63 games played. He has 30 points in 49 games this season for Missouri.
