Brendan Gaunce has one for the books, but the replay shows something slightly different.

It may look like a ripper from the slot, but the puck actually was a rebound that redirected off his skate and in. But hey, there's a reason why they say going to the net makes good things happen. And really, a goal is a goal is a goal. Congrats to the 21-year-old.

Brendan Gaunce scored two goals for Vancouver’s Young Stars team.

An important first step for him as he looks to make a strong impression to make the NHL roster. "I would not come outright and say I should be on the (Canucks)," Gaunce said. "But I definitely feel I can play at the NHL level. I want the Canucks to believe in me as well." There is some opportunity for younger players to make this roster, but the Canucks won’t rush their 21-year-old. Gaunce had 11 goals and 29 points last season.
