Goal by Lancaster's McLaughlin wows ESPN broadcaster

Dylan McLaughlin has a fan in ESPN's John Buccigross. One look at McLaughlin's goal from the weekend explains why.

McLaughlin, from Lancaster, registered an early nominee for hockey play of the year Saturday night. Playing for Cedar Rapids of the United States Hockey League, the 17-year-old streaked down the right side, accepted a pass, then put the puck and his stick between his legs and shot top shelf over the Green Bay goaltender.

"If this isn't on SC Top Ten, I'm walking off the Sportscenter set tonight," Buccigross wrote on Twitter on Monday.

McLaughlin, who attended Lancaster High before leaving for the USHL, was the ninth overall pick by Sioux Falls in the 2011 USHL futures draft. The center was traded to Cedar Rapids in the offseason.
