At 4:18 of the first period in the Minnesota Wild/Colorado Avalanche game, video review confirmed the referee's call on the ice that Mikko Koivu's pass deflected off of Charlie Coyle and into the net in a legal fashion, crossing the goal line while the net remained in proper position. According to Rule 78.4 "if an attacking player has the puck deflect into the net, off his skate or body, in any manner, the goal shall be allowed." Good Goal Minnesota.
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.
