NHL prospect Sonny Milano punches physics in the face with sick puck tricks

- May 30th, 2014

This is Sonny Milano. He’s pretty good with the puck.

Need proof? Just watch as the projected NHL first-round pick defies gravity with masterful use of centrifugal force along with great stickwork to control a puck as he sees fit.

I think this is what they mean by “good hands.”

The 18-year-old Milano is ranked No. 16 among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting Service.

He put up 86 points in 58 games for the U.S. under-18 team this past season skating on a line with 2015 top prospect Jack Eichel. It was the fifth-best season all-time for a player in the U.S. National Team Development Program. Among the top 10 on the list are Patrick Kane, Phil Kessel (twice) and James van Riemsdyk. Eichel, for the record, also entered the elite group with 87 points this season.

Milano is currently attending the NHL combine in Toronto.

    There is nothing that he did that “punched physics in the face.”
    Cool yes. Difficult yes. I’m sure Leafs will draft him because of his “skills.”
