I remember this. It was everywhere even on the frigen news! It's also the most overrated video ever, those moves are original dekes, the ones where he picks it up on his stick are pretty sweet, but can't everyone do that now?
Kid should work on his shot - it looks week - on my son's summer team when he was 8 years old they were picking corners from the blueline.
He's got okay moves, but like I said above, there are 8 year old kids scoring one handed Mike Legg goals these days.
His parents should tame him down on his showboating, before one of his own players takes out a few of his teeth - let alone what the opposing team might do to him.
I know at least ten 7 year old kids in my city better than this kid - and that's not counting the 8 year olds. He'd probably be a 3rd line Tier One Novice player in Canada - designated to a checking line ... and probably designated to riding the pine, if he diidn't start hitting the open man.
Keep the home videos to your self at least until he's in Bantam - because you know what - nobody really cares until there at least 13.
lol, oh really? You act like they're playing in the NHL. Nobody can pick corners as an 8 year old bud. I'm a 14 year old AAA player, playing Varsity as a Freshman, and I can't even pick corners from the blue line. And the NHLers can barely pick corners from the hash, otherwise everyone would've gone 4 for 4 in the skills.
Don't blame the child, he has a rubber neck right to the stands. On most goals anyways.
Really, I mean what's the point of trying to show off an 8 year old KID. He hasn't even been alive for a decade, the real good players start to dominate when they reach 12-14. Also, by the username on youtube, you can tell it's the parents. This kid might be in for a rough ride..
All kids should have fun. He's taking it too far, though - it's as if the attention is what he's seeking more than actually helping the team. What's up with that "paddling off the ice" thing when the game is over? Teach the kid sportsmanship.
Thats pretty normal here.. Its for the parents/fans.. Even senior teams does it sometimes..

So that's who should've been invited at the last All-Star game....would've been fun to see the pros and then you invite the kid on the ice who blew them away....though playing in front of 500 compared to 20 000 might be a slight difference...
