If Rickard Rakell keeps scoring goals like this, he will be in for quite a pay day during the offseason.
Rakell is one of the RFA's Anaheim will have to resign this coming summer and is quickly becoming a key piece of the Ducks' future. Rakell scored a beautiful goal in overtime to give the Ducks a 2-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers and increase their season high winning streak to seven games.
Rakell had the puck just inside the Edmonton zone and cruised along the blueline. He then was one on one with Leon Draisaitl and made a great toe drag type of move making Draisaitl look silly before making another great move to the backhand and roof the puck past Oilers goalie Cam Talbot. He took advantage of going at a forward in a defensive position and didn't miss his chance. It was Rakell's 16th goal this season. He just keeps adding to his new career high and last night was definitely on of the prettiest goals he has scored.
