Call it the Soccer Surge.
Jessica McDonald, of the National Women's Soccer League champion North Carolina Courage, helped the Carolina Hurricanes celebrate their victory at PNC Arena on Friday.
The star forward who was named MVP of the 2018 NWSL championship game, walked out to center ice to join the Hurricanes in the Skol Clap.
After that was finished, Hurricanes forward Sebastian Aho grabbed a soccer ball and gave McDonald a penalty kick from the slot.
The goalie? Hurricanes forward Brock McGinn. He never stood a chance.
After all, as McDonald knows, a goal is a goal.
