VIDEO: Cam Atkinson has an awesome backhand shot
Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson let the Devils know on Tuesday night he was quite the backhand shot, scoring a beauty from the slot.
There aren't many guys in the league that can fire a backhander from the high slot with the accuracy and speed of a wrist shot, but Atkinson is one of them. His goal against the Devils was all the proof you need.
Well, that was wicked. Although it's probably a bad idea to let a guy cruise through the slot unmoleted, New Jersey. Just sayin'.
Not to be lost was the entire shift that Atkinson had before that goal, taking the puck into the zone and fighting to keep it in the zone a couple of times before getting it on his backhand. Great play from start to finish, emphasis on the finish.
