Video: Cogliano’s sliding, twirling, one-handed goal is worth watching

Sep 29, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

One thing Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano has always had going for him is his speed. Apparently he’s got a little bit of skill thrown into the mix as well as he demonstrated to the San Jose Sharks.

At 10:27 of the first period of the Ducks’ 6-5 loss to the Sharks, Cogliano came blitzing into the Sharks zone and turned Scott Hannan inside out with a spin-o-rama-like move before falling on his stomach and one-handing the puck past Antti Niemi. Sound unbelievable? Seeing is believing.

Sure, preseason games don’t count in the standings but can we make sure goal of the year candidates can be had from them?

    Wow that was some impressive sh*t. Anyone can appreciate that goal. He made that look easy

    Being on the west coast I’ve seen him play often last year and knew he was quick and has talent. But this is over the top. He’s going to be one to watch in the future.

    Nice goal, but it’s pre-season.
