Best “WOW” Goals Since the Year 2000

It’s currently August which means the dead time of year for hockey news. Therefore, what better time to look back on some of the most amazing goals over the last 10-15 years? The following are my top-10 favorite goals since the year 2000. My only real criteria for this list is that the goals made me go “Wow.” When I first saw these goals live, my jaw dropped due to the insane combination of skill, and clutch factor. (Disclaimer: A couple of the goals on this list have lots of skill but little clutch value while some are incredibly clutch but aren’t overly skillful. Most, however,  have lots of both.)

Enjoy :)
