Flashback: He shoots and scores—from 180 feet

This past Monday’s post included a video clip of Colin Wilson’s goal against Russia in the IIHF World U18 championship game. A sharp-eyed reader, searching You Tube for more NTDP U18 action, found a season highlight video compiled by Justin Vaive, which included another key play by Wilson, and now has forwarded the link. The goal was described in a THFBlog post back on September 24. With the score tied at 1-1and just six seconds left in a game against the Indiana Ice, the U18s drew a penalty. Indiana pulled its goalie for the offensive end faceoff, ready to storm the net. Wilson blew up the plan, winning the draw cleanly back to Kevin Shattenkirk who fired from his own goal line the length of the ice into the empty net for the game-winner as time expired. The sequence comes at 43 seconds into the video clip.
