Minnesota Wild left-winger Thomas Vanek shredded the defense against the Winnipeg Jets for one of the best goals of the NHL season so far.

Vanek laced the puck through his own legs to evade the defender between him and the goal, sized up the goalie and then fired an absolute sniper shot to the top corner of the net for the goal.
