Last night we got our first candidate for goal of the year in the NHL. The season is only about 12 games old but Vladimir Tarasenko showed off his sick hands on this power play goal against the New York Rangers.

Tarasenko was the number one star last week in the NHL as he put up five goals and a assist in three games to lead the league.

This week he starts off with this killer goal and had the winning goal in the shoot out as St. Louis won 4-3 over the Rangers.

In his third season this 22-year-old Russian just might be on his way to becoming a big star in the NHL.
