9-Year-Old Scores Best Hockey Goal Ever … Sick

Saw this on the Boston Bruins’ site this morning, and it has to be the most awesome hockey goal ever scored (caveat: I don’t watch that much hockey). Degree of difficulty: 9.0, because the kid is nine years old.

His name is Oliver Wahlstrom, and this is from TD Bank’s Mini 1-on-1 Challenge at TD Garden. Best part: How the goalie is just utterly befuddled. “Wait .. what?”

Video following the jump. Gotta see this.

Better quality video here. Young Oliver plays for the Portland (Maine) Junior Pirates League.

Pretty amazing, but not unprecedented, as it turns out. Here’s Max Gerlach, 9, from Cappell, Texas, during intermission at a Dallas Stars game in 2007.

What’s with kids these days? When I was nine I was playing in mud.
