This one has to be seen to be believed.
Nathan Pelletier of the BWC Hockey Academy, located in Canada, recently scored the goal of a lifetime.
Pelletier gathered the puck in his opponents’ corner, and appeared to be eyeing up a pass to a cutting teammate. Instead, a defender disrupted Pelletier’s pass, shooting the puck into the air. From behind the net, Pelletier took a swing at the airborne puck.
The rest is viral video history:

Welp, it might be time to close the book on any “goal of the year” contest.
