CBJ @ NJ - 11:42 of the Second Period

Marian Gaborik's goal at 11:42 of the second period in the Blue Jackets/Devils game was scored in a legal fashion. Gaborik knocked the puck out of the air with his stick below the normal height of his shoulders, and subsequently shot the puck into the New Jersey net. According to rule 80.1, "Batting the puck above the normal height of the shoulders with a stick is prohibited." Since Gaborik regained possession of the puck before shooting it into the net, the height of his stick in relation to the crossbar is not a factor. Good goal Columbus.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
