Taking A Look at the Best Goals of the NHL Betting SeasonPosted by: Charlie Smith
Online NHL betting fans have already been treated to some of the most amazing, eye-popping goals of recent time. So many of those goals were astonishing, but even more impressive is the fact that they came from rookies. Auston Matthews, who plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs, and Patrik Laine, who plays for the Winnipeg Jets, delivered goals that kept us on the edge of our seats in their first day on the ice within the NHL. With that accomplishment those two rookies join an impressive club of athletes who have also accomplished the same; Alexander Ovechkin and Steven Stamkos. Let’s see which other players have delivered dazzling goals so far this online NHL betting season.
Jaromir Jagr’s 750th
What better way to start this list off than with such a landmark goal? Jaromir Jagr is as famous for his talents on the ice as he is for his off the ice conundrums, stretching from gambling addictions to ‘morning after’ photos with another hockey player’s girlfriend. But putting aside his antics, Jagr’s aptitude for hockey is undeniable. Jagr’s 750th goal helped the Florida Panthers tie the game in the second player, but more notably let Jagr achieve something extremely rare. Jagr became the third player in NHL history to score 750 goals, joining legends like Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky. Online NHL betting fans will remember the goal itself was a thing of beauty, but once accounted for the accomplishment is even more impressive.
Patrik Laine Earns A Hat Trick for OT Win
Jagr’s goal made the top of the list for its eloquence and for how impressive of an accomplishment it was. Both of those attributes apply to Patrik Laine’s overtime goal that propelled the Winnipeg Jets over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Not only was it in added time, but the goal completed Patrik Laine’s hat trick for the day. Auston Matthews, another rookie, had a chance to score but was stuffed and then Laine took it all the way. On that day, we knew exactly which rookie was the better man.
Marian Hossa’s 500th
There’s already one name on this list for another lifetime accomplishment, so why not another? Marian Hossa is well known for his talents, but unlike Jagr, Hossa’s public relations team look forward to working with him. Hossa’s 500th career goal came in a stunning fashion during a blowout game against the Philadelphia Flyers. With that goal Hossa became the 44th player in NHL history to reach 500 career goals. With Hossa on the team, the Chicago Blackhawks are sure to be favored by the best hockey betting sites on the web.
