Peterborough Petes goalie Dylan Wells isn't just a top Edmonton Oilers prospect and one of the best players in the Ontario Hockey League.

He's also a scoring threat.

The league posted a video of Wells finding the empty net from behind his own net, a mere 200 feet away.

Wells played the puck behind the net and launched it over all of Kingston Frontenacs players and into the vacant net to cap a 6-2 win and a playoff series sweep.

The Petes have now played eight playoff games and won all eight.

And it appears they could have the next Mike Smith in goal.
