Stan Galiev with some nice moves in ECHL game (video)

By Adam Gretz | Hockey writer

On Wednesday night Stan Galiev, a former third-round pick of the Washington Capitals, scored this pretty outstanding goal for the Reading Royals of the ECHL during their 4-2 win over the Florida Everblades.

After he crosses the blue line and hurdles over a sprawling defender trying to knock the puck away from him, Galiev breaks in on net by himself and beats goalie Pat Nagle with a move similar to the one made famous by Peter Forsberg at the 1994 Winter Olympics.

It's a pretty common move to see in shootouts when there is nobody else on the ice, and it's always exciting, but it's even nicer when it takes place during an actual game like this one.

It was Galiev's second goal of the season during what is his first year of pro hockey.

He's a top prospect in the Capitals organization, and, along with playing for the Royals, he's also spent some time in the American Hockey League appearing in nine games with the Hershey Bears, recording one assist.
