Between-the-legs goals: They're not just for Matthew Tkachuk anymore.

Winnipeg Jets forward Kyle Connor scored a ridiculous power play goal in spectacular fashion, reminiscent of the one Calgary Flames forward just scored four days ago.

It was the second time Tkachuk did it this season, the first time coming back in November. Mathew Barzal of the New York Islanders converted one on February 4th and Columbus Blue Jackets forward Sonny Milano pulled out the same move back in October.

Connor's was unique in that he went between-the-legs after taking a feed from teammate Blake Wheeler, spinning toward his inside shoulder and roofing the puck past San Jose Sharks goalie Aaron Dell.

One of Tkachuk's two and Barzal's came off rebounds while Milano's was a breakaway. In Tkachuk's most recent he was all alone on the left side.

Connor's skillful shot was the latest in what seems to have become a growing trend.
