Prospect Alex Nylander Scores Amazing No-Look Goal in OHL
17-year-old Alex Nylander, son of NHL great Michael, has been turning heads in his first season with the OHL's Mississauga Steelheads this season. More: Dorsett Crashes Crease and Delivers Blow to Holtby's Head Nylander already has 16 points in 11 games for the 2nd place Steelheads, but none, surely, are sweeter than this behind-the-back no-look goal that he places top shelf over Ottawa 67's goalie Leo Lazarev during Mississauga's 5-2 win. Poor Lazarev probably never knew it was coming. Neither did the commentators on the call: "Nylander behind the net... and it's in." Yep, sure is.
