VIDEO: Michigan Tech’s Alex Petan Dazzles With From-the-Knees Goal

Michigan Tech pulled a big upset by virtually steamrolling Minnesota, skating away with a 5-3 win. The Huskies got off to the best possible start after freshman forward Alex Petan dazzled the crowd with this goal to make it 1-0.

The athleticism and skill Petan used to bury that one is really something. With Minnesota defenseman Mike Reilly attacking the puck, Jujhar Khaira sent the pass just a touch too far for Petan. Knowing how wide-open he was, Petan lunged for the puck and before he could get to his feet wired a shot that would make Steven Stamkos jealous.

It’s just the second goal of the former Coquitlam Express forward’s brief college career. Not a bad way to introduce yourself to the home fans.

The goal helped the Huskies grab the momentum early and they never trailed in the game, knocking off the consensus No. 1 team in the land with some authority.

The goal also got some love from John Buccigross on SportsCenter, climbing the charts to No. 3 on Top 10 plays. College hockey, you guys.
