Winnipeg Jets sniper Patrik Laine is one of the best pure shooters in the NHL. The 19-year-old, 2nd overall selection of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft burst onto the scene in the NHL in his rookie campaign with an incredible 36 goals and 64 points in just 73 games. With his deadly accuracy and incredible poise with the puck, there’s no telling what the upper limit is for this kid in terms of goal production.
And just because it’s the offseason, don’t think that Laine hasn’t been working on his shot. Just look at this snipe from a charity game hosted by Jussi Jokinen in Finland:
Wow. Talk about making it look easy. We can’t wait to see what this kid is capable of in 2017-18. Is it October yet?
