Already annoyed by coaches challenging goals for offside well after the fact? Well, get a load of this.
Trevor Zegras did it again on Wednesday night, effortlessly picking up a rolling puck onto his stick before cruising around the back fn his opponent’s net and stuffing it top-shelf for another classic “Michigan” goal.
Then Minnesota Wild video coach Jonas Plumb decided to ruin all the fun.
After review, it turned out Zegras’s Anaheim Ducks teammate Dmitry Kulikov was offside by mere inches, bringing back the goal and keeping the score 0-0. Even worse, Zegras’s goal came roughly 30 full seconds after the zone entry.
Talk about a party pooper.
Still, the play was another reminder of Zegras’s jaw-dropping skill.
The 21-year-old began innovating the game with several “Michigan’s” last season, including a “Michigan assist” that broke the internet. Now he’s added a “Recalled Michigan” to his repertoire, too.
