Partnership Press Release 12.18.13
Zegras joined Svechnikov’s club
Some call it a “Michigan-style puck”. And we in Russia say “scored like Andrey Svechnikov.” Be that as it may, forward “Anaheim” Trevor Zegras created a small miracle in the game with “Montreal” (5:4). At the very beginning of the second period, the guests won the face-off. Zegras picked up the puck, drove it out of the gate with it, picked it up on the hook of the stick and hurled it into the upper near corner with lightning speed, which Canadiens goalkeeper Sam Montembo did not have time to protect.
It seems to be a trick that is talked about a lot, and Zegras is not the first to perform it. But goalkeepers are still sometimes not ready for this. This moment helped “Anaheim” lead in the account 4:1. As the second period drew to a close, 20-year-old Zegras received a pass from 24-year-old Troy Terry, assisted by 19-year-old defenseman Jamie Drysdale, and slammed the puck into the net with a snap. That’s how the “Ducks” at once fired all three of the main young talent.
“Montreal” was not bad, won the second period, scored four goals, moved the guests twice (40-24). But the miracle goal of Zegras, as well as his second, winning goal, inspired Anaheim to a guest triumph. In addition, it should be noted that Trevor this season claims the “Calder Trophy”, going for the prize of the best rookie of the season. The winner of the award is determined by journalists. And moments like this lacrosse goal are sure to lift Zegras stock in this competitive race. Moreover, we can even say that the Anaheim forward (12+20=32 in this championship) became the main favorite of the competition, although Detroit’s Lucas Raymond scored a little more points (11+23=34).
“At first I was looking to see if I could pass someone from behind the net by throwing it through the gap between the players,” Zegras explained. “But when I realized that I had some space, I decided to try something else. So I don’t even know… I just got lucky.”
Trevor already had a spectacular goal this season, when he, too, out of the net against Buffalo, threw the puck on teammate Sonny Milano, and he drove it into the net. It was really great.
“I just wrapped the stick, I had a fresh tape. And I decided to try,” Zegras also commented on this moment at half-time. It turns out that the fresh tape factor also plays a role here.
And after the game, the attacker explained why he uses this lacrosse feint so often: “It’s one of those feints that you always keep in mind – and use it when there is a chance at a high pace to catch the puck on the stick. I don’t think that a lot of goalkeepers expect this. But when I have some space behind the net, I really don’t see any reason why not. It’s like a dribble. It’s something I work on a lot in training. It’s nice to see how it is. sometimes comes true.”
In general, in North America this trick is called “Michigan” in honor of Mike Legg from the University of Michigan, who scored this goal, and that moment became popular. If we talk about Russia, we remember well how in the semi-finals of the 2011 World Cup in Bratislava, a young Finn, Mikael Granlund, scored such a goal against Konstantin Barulin. Then this allowed the Suomi team to defeat the Russian team (3: 0), and then in the final to defeat the Swedish team (6: 1). Curiously, Granlund scored only two goals in that tournament, but one glorified him for life.
If we talk about the NHL, then this trick was first used by Carolina forward Andrey Svechnikov. And then he did it again. That is, a kind of fashion has already appeared. Later, Nashville forward Philip Forsberg scored the same lacrosse goal, although his team eventually lost to Edmonton (2:4). This feint flew around the world, came into use …
Video: Zegras se unió a Svechnikov y a Forsberg the Finnish stage of the Eurotour – at the gates of the Swedes, when he also performed lacrosse. But still, such moments cause a very big stir among journalists. Why? Let’s answer with the words of a famous meme: firstly, it’s beautiful.
By the way, Svechnikov reacted to Zegras’ goal by tweeting: “Great goal!!! Let’s see who scores next.” I mean, from whom to expect a new lacrosse. You can even take a bet, it will happen this season. When there is fashion, there is no escape from it.
Tweet from @ASvechnikov_37: Nice goal!! Let’s see who is gonna pull the next one 👀 https://t.co/4UAHmB8ZAE
During the match there was such a moment that everything was for Trevor, and he performed this feint.
Anaheim legends forward Teemu Selanne also tweeted, “Wow! Are you serious? It’s fun to watch this kid!”
Tweet from @TeemuSel8nne: Wow💪💪💪 Are you serious😳 This kid is fun to watch😊 https://t.co/VslYsXeg6p
Oh, this is the greatest thing!” says Ducks assistant coach Mike Stothers. “And you must have seen the reaction of our team on the bench when Zegras scored that lacrosse goal. It was shock, amazement. And some, like me, They didn’t even raise an eyebrow. You know why? Because it’s hockey. And we have to keep playing it right.”
Beauty is nothing, the system is everything. So you can paraphrase the words of the coach. But years will pass, and we will not remember how Anaheim played. And how Zegras scored the same goal that made our day.

“Give them back!”. How in Hartford they root for a team that has not existed for 19 years
BUSINESS Online presents a translation of material ESPN about an unusual occurrence in Hartford, Connecticut. Despite the fact that the Whalers NHL club has been gone for 19 years, the legendary Brass Bonanza anthem plays in the city, merchandise with an equally legendary logo is sold in stores, and the fan club is able to raise a thousand dollars for scholarships for young hockey players.
This year the NHL will add a club from Las Vegas. Many
opponents of league expansion pointed to the Carolinas, a club that no one
walks and whose owner is implicated almost in money laundering. “Club
won’t move anywhere. A good fan base has formed around the Hurricanes.
base, and I believe that the club has every opportunity for growth, ”said
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman this summer. In fact, the Carolinas are the worst club in the league.
by attendance, according to ESPN
(10969 people on average per match), and soon the Hurricanes, obviously,
will move Las Vegas from the bottom – a newcomer who does not have the prerequisites to
fill your brand new arena. At the same time, for 19 years now, Hartford, Connecticut, has been waiting for a hockey team to return to the city, which
I just left for Carolina. There is no new hockey arena in Hartford, but the same “fan
base” exists to this day, as evidenced by the ESPN text.
KAROLINA? I CHOOSE FOR HARTFORD
John O’Leary is a 38 year old lacrosse teacher and coach who has lived most of his life in Connecticut. He has a whole collection of… Hartford Whalers ties. “I bought them at local sales and through eBay,” he says. “I put it on whenever I get a chance, people always notice them.”
Ties are just the beginning. O’Leary was born into a family of Whalers fans: his father always bought season tickets. John also has a collection of tickets, t-shirts, photos and more. Most likely, he has collected all the club paraphernalia that has been produced since 1997 years. Interesting fact: he spent 19 years of his life with the Whalers in Hartford, 19 years without them.
The club is now 600 miles south and is called the Carolina Hurricanes. But O’Leary is not a fan of the Carolinas: the club is not able to replace its original. “Now I support the Whalers more than ever,” he said.
John is not alone in his feelings about Hartford. It’s amazing how strong a fan base a club has, which in fact does not exist. People are still wearing Hartford jerseys (they are sold at the airport), Whalers banners are still hanging in the XL Center (they were removed during the renovation of the stadium, and there was a riot in the city), autograph sessions with former players of the club are still collecting full houses, the fan club is still working, although, in fact, there is no one to root for. The team moved almost 20 years ago, but the Whalers have remained a part of Hartford life – a very big part for some people.
The current president of the fan club , Juan Corteza , is just one of “some”. Like many Whalers fans, she gets overwhelmed with emotion when talking about the team. She recounts wearing the black armband to the Whalers’ last game in 1997 and recalls club owner Peter Karmanoz . It was this man who moved the club to the Carolinas. “Bah,” Juan’s blood pressure can be heard rising as the name “Karmanosa” comes up. Afterwards, she tries hard to remember something good about the team that doesn’t exist.
“We have a wide variety of people in our club,” says Corteza. – There are experienced fans who went to the matches, and there are young guys. There are even fans who are 10, 12, 15 years old.”
The club is not numerous by today’s standards – 45 people. But its members are still paying a thousand-dollar stipend for a player on the hockey team at the University of Connecticut. The club also regularly organizes field trips. For example, in January, the fans went to the New Jersey and Dallas game: the bus was packed to capacity. Why this particular match? “Because of Darrel Reef, the former Whalers goaltender who is now commentating for the Stars. We wanted to meet him,” Juan explains.
“THE RETURN WE BELIEVE”
The members of the Hartford fan club seem to know where every former coach, player, commentator lives, dine and vacations. Love extends not so much to the team as to the players themselves. “Many of them spent the best years of their careers here,” says Corteza. “Most of them met their wives here and got married. By the way, they still live in Connecticut.”
There are two reasons why the Whalers are still remembered today. The first is the logo, which is considered one of the best in NHL history. So, the story about the logo designer Peter Hood received a great response from readers on ESPN. The second – club paraphernalia can still be purchased in stores.
Let’s not forget about Brass Bonanza, an anthem that is as legendary as the logo. It’s kind of like music from an NFL documentary. Brass Bonanza – highlight music, action music, sports music. The anthem is still used in Hartford to this day, played after goals scored by the University of Connecticut hockey team.
The most interesting thing about the Whalers situation is that it’s been 19 years and most fans just don’t want to accept the team’s move. They remain hopeful that one day the Whalers will return. “We always participate in the St. Patrick’s Day parade,” says Cortez. – And every time the crowd greets us with cries of: “Bring them back, bring them back!”. And in general, in any place where a club of fans gathers, “Bring them back!” is heard.
