VIDEO: Sweden's Linus Klasen scores insane shootout goal
Swedish forward Linus Klassen scored one of the prettiest goals you'll ever see in a shootout.
While playing for his native Sweden in the Channel One Cup in Sochi, Russia, Linus Klasen pulled off one of the most remarkable shootout moves you’ll ever see. We’ve seen spinning shootout attempts before, but never quite like this.
That’s a complete spin, while passing the puck to himself between his legs and utterly stunning Czech netminder Alexander Salak who bit so hard he was already halfway to the bench by the time the puck crossed the line.
Klasen, who has 39 points in 31 games for Lulea in the Swedish Hockey League, once appeared in four games with the Nashville Predators.
