This didn’t end up being a goal for Elmer Soderblom, but the effort he made to create this goal is nothing short of spectacular. A masterclass in the so-called ‘mohawk’ move:

Soderblom will turn 21 this summer, and is destined for pro hockey in North America next season. He was a sixth round pick in 2019. He’s pushing seven-feet tall and 250 pounds heavy. NFL size, NHL talent. I’m excited to see him at the next level.
