Habs first-rounder scores incredible between-the-legs goal (Video)

St. Cloud State forward Ryan Poehling scored a jaw-dropping goal on Friday night that you’ll probably have to see to believe.

The Montreal Canadiens first-round pick in 2017 had the confidence to try a between-the-legs move on a breakaway in the third period of a tie game between St. Cloud State and North Dakota. To pull this off at any age is incredible, but to have the confidence to do it at 19 years old is just crazy.

Take a look for yourself and get ready to be amazed:

Obviously, the move has been done before. As you probably remember, Marek Malik shocked everyone when he used the same move during a shootout.

Both players pulled it off, but Poehling gets extra credit because he tried it during a game, with a defenseman chasing him.
