Columbus Blue Jackets prospect Sonny Milano displayed a magician's touch with a beautiful spin-o-rama goal during an American Hockey League playoff game Tuesday.

Skating for the Lake Erie in Game 4 of the Calder Cup Playoffs against Grand Rapids, Milano broke in on defenseman Xavier Ouellet, spun to his left and shot a backhand past goalie Tom McCollum in one motion. The goal was Milano's third of the playoffs and fifth in his past seven games.

The Blue Jackets selected Milano, 19, with the 16th pick of the 2014 NHL Draft. He had 14 goals and 31 points in 54 games during his first season in the AHL, and one assist in three NHL games.

Lake Erie lost 5-4 but leads the best-of-7 series 3-1.
