Player invents insane new type of shootout move in All Star Game

Published January 16, 2024 at 8:24
Yesterday night, the ECHL hosted their annual all-star game. Usually, a lower tier minor league all-star game would never make the news, but one player went above and beyond in the shootout, shocking the entire hockey world.

Matthew Brown, an undrafted 24 year old of the Reading Royals in the ECHL pretty much invented a new shootout move - and it was beautiful.

Brown skated in and was able to control and lift the puck on his backhand, then deke the goalie with a side to side move with the puck in the air, and put it past him on the forehand side.

It was an absolutely incredible goal and a display of skill that one may not expect from the ECHL all stars - honestly, only a handful of NHL players could pull this off. Maybe we'll see another player take not, perhaps Trevor Zegras, and try this in an NHL shootout.
