The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins were working on a power play against Hershey in a preseason contest at Mohegan Sun Arena.
Rookie defenseman Joe Morrow, 19, slid into shooting position on the point. The puck glided across the ice toward his feet. Morrow pulled back his stick and unleashed the blade into the puck, sending the rubber scorching past goaltender Braden Holtby and into the net.
“It’s gotta be good genetics or something,” Morrow said after the game of his blistering shot. “I couldn’t tell you how I shoot the puck and I couldn’t teach someone how to shoot the puck. It’s just kind of there.”
