It feels like it happened overnight, but the NHL has moved away from its prodding past of defensive zone traps and hulking tough guys who can barely skate filling out the fourth lines. Today’s NHL is all about speed and skill, thanks both to a number of rule changes implemented over the years, and the arrival of young superstars like Connor McDavid, Patrik Laine, and William Nylander (just to name a few).
The end result is a entire season of eye popping goals, which the NHL kindly gathered and released in a single 60-second long compilation video. Just watch this and be amazed!
