If Ryan Johansen is ever looking to make some scratch on the side being a pool shark might be his best bet.
The Nashville Predators forward put the proverbial nail in the coffin of the Minnesota Wild with a trick-shot-esque empty netter.
Defenseman Ryan Ellis swipes away a loose puck in the neutral zone and back to Johansen – who is about five feet behind the blueline. The forward chips the puck high up in the air, like he’s going for an alley-oop, but the arc is so perfect it coasts into the net.
(Let’s give a little love to his time in Columbus for allowing him to work on his chip game while on the golf course… sorry.)
The point was the third of the evening for Johansen, and iced the game against the Minnesota Wild, 4-2.
