NHLers Lighting It Up As Kids Pt. 2

David Booth foreshadowing how many Falcor's he would hunt.
Last week we found some pretty awesome videos of players like Steven Stamkos, Jonathan Toews and Jordan Eberle as nine and ten-year-olds tearing up a novice tournament in Edmonton. Well the videos kept coming this week and now we get to see David Booth, Tyler Seguin, Matthew Lombardi, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nigel Dawes dangle and score along with Max Pacioretty catching Peter Mueller cutting into the middle. As the guys at Pension Plan Puppets wrote last week about the NHLers in novice videos, making it to the NHL isn't done through just hard work as these kids were born with the talent and at age 10 you can clearly see they are above the rest. So a note to those delusional hockey parents thinking they have the next NHL star under their roof, unless your kid is dominant like these NHLers were at age 10 then you need to give your head a shake.

Here are some nifty goals from NHLers as nine and ten-year-olds:

David Booth scoring this dirty double OT winner in '94:



Love the coach wearing shorts that eventually pulls him up from the pile.

Tyler Seguin hustling for a breakaway and going top shelf:


Seguin rocking the eye black as a ten-year-old is so Tyler Seguin.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scoring top corner from the slot on a one-timer:


The Nuge was a natural, also a good guy for going back and helping coach at the tournament this past year.

Here's Nigel Dawes going coast-to-coast for a beauty:



What speed, what moves, what a shot, what a cele, and what ever happened to Dawes? KHL is what.

Peter Mueller cutting into the middle only to be rocked by Max Pacioretty:



Shades of Pacioretty's hit on Kris Letang last season in that hit.

Here's a compilation of Matthew Lombardi using his speed and scoring goals:



It's amazing just how much faster he looks than the other kids. Power skating pays off.
