Batter up, Sebastian Aho.
The Carolina Hurricanes forward batted the puck in from midair for an exceptional goal during the third period of their 8-2 win against the Ottawa Senators.
Joel Edmundson's initial shot was sticked away by goalie Craig Anderson, but it caromed off the end boards and over the net. Aho tracked the puck to a legal height and smacked it in, giving Carolina a 6-1 lead.
You can decide whether it was better than the lacrosse goal Andrei Svechnikov scored on Oct. 29.
It was the second of Aho's two goals in the game, helping Carolina snap a four-game losing skid.
