Logan Hutsko's eight goals are tied for the most on Boston College this season.

By the end of the week, he might also lead the Eagles in Instagram followers.

On Monday afternoon, the Florida Panthers prospect got a surprising shoutout on social media from one of the most unlikely people in the world - multi-platinum recording artist Justin Bieber.

Re-sharing a video of Hutsko's curl-and-snipe goal that helped Boston College top Yale 6-2 on Nov. 26 to his 122 million Instagram followers -- yes, you read that number right -- Bieber, a Canadian with a strong love of hockey, captioned the clip with "This kid is the truth @lhutsko9."

At the time of this posting, the video had already been viewed over 1,600,000 times.

"It happened five minutes before my exam and my phone was buzzing like crazy," Hutsko told the website BC Interruption. "I had to put it away so I could focus. Pretty cool what social media can do with stuff like that."

After being alerted to the shout out, Hutsko quickly re-shared it to his own Instagram story and also replied to Bieber's original post with the comment "Appreciate the love goat @justinbieber."

Hours later, the 20-year-old forward's Instagram followers had also shot up by a few thousand.

A third-round pick (89th overall) pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, Hutsko has kick off his junior season with the Eagles with an 11-game point streak, notching eight goals and five assists in that span.

As for his connection to Bieber, we'll keep an eye out for name drop on his next single.

In case you missed it, the Panthers visited Boston College this fall to check in with their prospects!
