Jakob Chychrun's Early Dirty Dangle Of The Year Candidate
Not a bad celebration either... (Photo: Metcalfe Photography)
Jakob Chychrun is a 6'2", 194lbs defenceman for the Sarnia Sting of the OHL at the ripe age of 16. That's a pretty big frame to be dangling with... and holy shit he's 16?!?! The 2014 OHL first overall pick has certainly made a name for himself this season as a freshman with 8 goals and 17 points through 20 games, but this goal he scored last night has garnered national attention:
Starting in his own zone with a backchecker in hot pursuit, Chychrun enters the Guelph Storm zone 1-on-2 and proceeds to split the defenders while feeding the puck through the almost 21-years-old Storm d-man, Zac Leslie. While being brought down by Leslie, Chychrun is able to dive past the defender and slap the puck past goaltender, Bradley Van Schubert, while on his knees. Impressive goal and and an early candidate at the end of the year for Dirty Dangle of the Year.
