Video Review at 1:57 of the 3rd Period in the Minnesota/Ottawa game confirmed the referee's ruling on the ice that Minnesota forward Nick Johnson scored a goal during a goal mouth scramble. The puck was conclusively determined to be entirely over the goal line.
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.
