The Carolina Hurricanes' 2020 seventh-round draft pick, Alexander Pashin
, just scored a lacrosse-goal in their prospects match against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Fitting, considering Carolina's Andrei Svechnikov
introduced the NHL to that move just a couple years ago. He also did a nearly identical celly. Basically, Pashin just made the coolest possible homage to the Canes' star and most likely just earned him a semi-permanent spot in the organization.
Pashin, 20, played 34 games for Toros Neftekamsk in '21-22, scoring 30 points and added 12 points in 11 VHL playoff games. The VHL, or the 'Supreme League' is Russia's top junior league.
Perhaps the Hurricanes found a diamond in the rough with this kid. He definitely caught the eye of management today.
