BLOG: Greatest goal Roenick has ever seen

Jeremy Roenick tells the story of a 1991 Canada Cup practice he'll never forget

by Chris Wescott /

As a guy who should know a thing or two about nice goals, Jeremy Roenick was stunned by one in particular - and it came in a practice.

"Brett Hull had a shot I've never seen," said Roenick. "He still has the best goal I've ever seen in my life and I don't think I'll ever see anything like it (again)."

One day in 1991, after a Canada Cup practice, Roenick, Hull and Chris Chelios were shooting pucks on a goaltender.

"Hull is shooting one-timers and making it look easy," Roenick said.

Chelios yelled from the blueline, challenging Hull to one-time a slap shot and then ripped it. Hull hammered the puck on net, top corner. The players on the ice were stunned at the sequence that had just unfolded.

Hull then put his hands on his hips and swaggered off the ice as the players around him watched in silence.

"Nobody shot the puck like Brett Hull."
