I'm not one to make "Goal of the Year" videos. I don't have the technical know-how in terms of splicing video and linking clips together and all that stuff. I tend to leave that kind of work to the experts because it usually turns out pretty good when they do it. After watching the Vancouver Canucks-Edmonton Oilers game the other night, I was certain that there might be a "Goal of the Year" candidate after seeing Kyle Wellwood's amazing end-to-end rush. After all, Mr. Wellwood hasn't been known for this speed or agility, especially after being criticized for being too heavy in training camp a couple of years ago with Toronto.
Well, after shedding most of the baby fat for muscle, this is the Kyle Wellwood that Toronto thought they were getting. Check out this play by Wellwood at the end of the game.
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
