Back in 2009, we met Oliver Wahlstrom, a youth hockey player from Maine who lit up the Internet when video of his amazing Mini 1-on-1 goal went viral.
He's at it again. Check out the latest trick-shot goal he turned in, which was shown last night at intermission of the Bruins-Senators game. Wahlstrom is now 11 years old and plays for the Portland Junior Pirates.
UPDATE, 5:50 p.m.: According to the NHL rule book, a shot like this is not illegal if the puck is not raised above the shoulders and, when released, is not carried higher than the crossbar. We're still checking to see if youth hockey rules permit this type of play.
