    This kid is sick...anyone know who he is?

    Check out that video, and see if you recognize this kid. Phenomenal skill for a 13-year-old, although the goalies looked average at best. Perhaps the second-coming of Robbie Schremp or dare I say Aki Berg...

    I'm not sure but I believe the only thing that can cure it is more cowbell.

    He has an attitude problem and is a defensive liability. His skating could use some improvement aswell.

    He had better grow as well. At 5'3'' 124 NHL defenceman will tear him apart.

    14? Are you sure? I would think with how OLD this video is, he's gotta be around 22 by now.

    he might not be the best defensive player but he's 14, c'mon! nobody's good at defense at that age.

    I know one of his coach in quebec city and he he's good kid, NO ATTITUDE PROBLEM. he's got good skills but that doesn't mean he's going to be a pro because of his size.

    Not sure, but I think the other poster was joking- you know, listing the stereotypical criticisms of all young phenoms. Hard to tell though . . . :)

    I saw this video on Break.com and I was pretty impressed. It's a 13 year old playing with high school kids (who appear to be 16-18 yrs of age).

    Maybe I'm overrating it...but seems pretty unbelievable for a 13 year old.

    Given that is some of the most impressive stuff I have ever seen, I'd like to see this guy in actual play.

    I agree, but give the guy 3 years to develop and he should be a pretty scary 16 year old. On top of that he looks fairly big for a 13 year old (imo). Maybe we have a new Tavares/Crosby? (probably not, but we'd be spoiled)

    I believe its been posted once or twice before. Since the rise of youtube those kind of tricks are things a lot of kids can replicate now. His skating appeared to be pretty impressive though.

    Where is he from, what's his name? Crosby was covered as a thirteen year old. They did a piece on him on the hockeynews, when he went to that american highschool for a season or two. Maybe we'll hear about him soon, but until then, it's a 13 year old that is having fun at a skills comp. Like someone else said, what can he do in ingame competition?

    Pretty good, for a 13 year old.

    The fake slapshot goal was one of the worst goaltending efforts I've ever seen.

    Reminds me of a junior game (12 or so olds) way back. I met a friend at the arena whose kid brother was playing goalie, one of the other teams forwards was making a complete fool of him, much like the kid in the video. Towards the end of the third the forward was once again on a breakway. Frustrated, the goalie simply took couple steps and run over him blocker first between the circles. Not that I condone such behaviour, but that was still pretty funny.

    Yes this video is unreal and no doubt the kid is pretty sick!, but the thing is though its just a shootout, like i hear alot of people saying hes the next Big thing, but we havent seen him in a game. Anyways i think people should hold off on calling him the Next Crosby or Next this and that until you see him play in an actual competitive game..
