Alright, get ready to lay your eyes on one of the most disgusting goals you’ll see this season at any level of hockey and it came courtesy of the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
More specifically, it came from one Rhett Pitlick, who comes from a family of NHLers. His brother Rem Pitlick plays for the Montreal Canadian, while his cousin Tyler Pitlick plays for the St. Louis Blues.
Pitlick and Minnesota were playing host to the Michigan Wolverines in the Big Ten Championship.
There’s not much I can say to prepare for what you’re about to see. If there are young children nearby, you may want to ask them to leave the room, because you’re about to see a heinous murder unfold.
Last I heard, NASA was still trying to tally up all the dekes that Pitlick unloaded between the red line and firing that biscuit stick-side on Michigan netminder Erik Portillo.
As you might expect it absolutely shattered fans’ minds.

Unfortunately for Minnesota fans that goal will live on as the highlight of this game (which isn’t all bad, because it was incredible). The Golden Gophers fell to the Wolverines in the Big Ten title game for the second year in a row, this time by a score of 4-3.
If you wondering which NHL team selected Pitlick and his disgusting mitts, it’s the Montreal Canadians.
They’ll be saying “oui, oui,” when they get a load of that tally.
