Mason Raymond scores lacrosse-style goal for Team Canada

Mike Legg, Sidney Crosby, Mikael Granlund, and now Mason Raymond.

The former NHLer was in Russia with Team Canada for the Sochi Hockey Open – competing for a spot on Canada’s Olympic roster – when he became one of a select few to do this:

The goal was Raymond’s second of the game and gave Canada a 2-1 lead in the third-place game. They eventually won 3-1.

Almost as good was the low-stated tweet by Hockey Canada. Way to undersell it, guys.

The goal caught the eye of fellow Olympic hopeful Max Talbot.

Raymond played just four games with the Anaheim Ducks in 2016-17, but the 31-year-old speedster does have a 25-goal NHL season to his name, which came with Vancouver in 2009-10.

He’ll play with SC Bern in Switzerland this coming season, and if he can keep this up, Team Canada in February.
