No assist needed: Zegras completes the 'Michigan' all on his own

Watch as Ducks' Trevor Zegras adds to his highlight reel and scores an incredible lacrosse goal on Canadiens' Sam Montembeault.

Is Trevor Zegras the most exciting player in hockey?

Last month, he set the hockey world ablaze when he pulled off the very first "Michigan assist" — an alley-opp on ice to Anaheim Ducks teammate Sonny Milano.

On Thursday, he decided to replicate Mike Legg's famous move all on his own — casually picking the puck up on his stick as he curled behind the Montreal Canadiens net before tucking it upstairs, past goaltender Samuel Montembault with ease to make it 4-1... as if the Canadiens haven't already suffered enough.

This is getting ridiculous. But really, it's just another day at the office for Zegras.

Although Zegras flashing a spectacular display of skill feels like a weekly occurrence these days, the Michigan will never fail to send hockey Twitter into a frenzy — whether people are marvelling at the skill or upset because he's not "playing the game the right way."

Now we wait to see what he can do in the All-Star skills competition's Breakaway Challenge on Feb. 4, assuming he hasn't revealed all his tricks already.
