Mikael Granlund has become a man. He is the focal point for the Finland national team, and this lacrosse goal against the Russians solidifies his spot in Finnish lore.

Every kid has wanted to try this. Mike Legg did it for Michigan against the Minnesota Gophers in 1996, but that's nothing. This was in the World Hockey Championships. This was at full speed. This was a goalscorers goal.

And now in Finnish


And this time in Russian


Ok Chuck, how on earth are you going to keep this kid in the AHL now?
