Video of Detroit Lakes hockey player's goal gets national attention
DETROIT LAKES, Minn. - Goaltenders already had Alex Mason's normal breakaway shot figured out. So the Detroit Lakes boys hockey player wanted to try something different.
What Mason did has turned him into a YouTube sensation.
Mason, 18, in a game last Friday used his backhand to lift the puck going left to right before throwing the puck over the goalie's shoulder for what many are dubbing as the "goal of the year."
