Rechlicz, 27, had a goal and an assist along with 87 penalty minutes in 25 games last season for the Hershey Bears, the Washington Capitals' American Hockey League affiliate.
Not known for his finesse, Rechlicz gained notoriety in a preseason game for the Capitals against the Philadelphia Flyers when he was used in a shootout and scored the decisive goal on a nifty backhander.
Rechlicz has one assist and 105 penalty minutes in 26 NHL games with the New York Islanders and Capitals.
I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
