Adam Mascherin is an 18-year-old Florida Panthers prospect that was taken in the second round of this summer’s draft. On Sunday, though, he was better known as the guy who completely stole the soul of a defender via a sick through-the-legs deke.
Currently playing for the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL, Mascherin displayed some sweet hands and creativity in overtime of Sunday’s game against the Saginaw Spirit. The forward carried the puck into the offensive zone and put it through a defenders legs to get into open space. The poor defenseman had no idea what hit him and his entire body basically went into shutdown mode.
After that, the only guy left to beat was the goaltender. Mascherin also made quick work of him, turning him inside out before putting the puck into an open net for the game-winner.
