Minnesota high schooler scores one of the sickest hockey goals ever [VIDEO]
Detroit Lakes senior Alex Mason hopes to continue his hockey career next year on a Canadian junior team. Saturday, he faked a goalie out of his pads while scoring an NHL-caliber short-handed goal.
Mason is an interesting kid -- he rocks flowing long hair as a tribute to his Mahomen Indian roots and lives on the White Earth Reservation, but attends class at the nearby Detroit Lakes High School.
Below the jump is video of Mason's goal, which Yahoo calls "one of the most spectacular goals of the calendar year, at any level of hockey competition":
No doubt, that's the best goal I've seen from a Minnesota high schooler since Adam Banks tore it up in the Goodwill Games .
