That's one way to show the world why you were deserving of the first overall pick in the 2017 National Hockey League Entry Draft.

On Monday night Nico Hischier put his talents on full display when an incredible individual effort on his part led to a New Jersey Devils goal in a preaseason game against the Washington Capitals

Hischier created his own opportunity when he picked the pocket of a Capitals defender, giving himself a short breakaway that he capitalized upon. 

He made it count as well, putting a beautiful move on the Capitals goalie and tucking the puck under his bad for a beautiful goal.
