The Peterborough Petes and the London Knights, both of the OHL, faced off last night. New York Rangers prospect Andrew Yogan scored what is certainly one of the best goals in junior hockey this season, going end to end and making it look easy.
Yogan was selected in the 4th round of the 2010 draft by the Rangers and is one of more underrated prospects the Rangers have. Many experts anticipated Yogan being selected in the first two rounds but long-term shoulder injury significantly hurt his stock. The Rangers took a chance on him and although injuries plagued him further last season, he’s starting to make the pick look like a good gamble. He earned a tryout with the Connecticut Whale last season and scored two goals with one assist in the two games he played, and this season he has a solid 29 points in 31 games for the Peterborough Petes in his overage season. Yogan will need to finish the season as strong as he started it to earn an NHL contract this summer, but his combination of size and ability (which can be seen in the video) makes him a potential impact player in the NHL.
