Kevin SchultzThis is from earlier in the week, but it’s still worth a look. It’s Jesse Graham, the Isles sixth round pick from 2012, making a huge play for the Saginaw Spirit in the OHL. I’ll just let the video do the talking, instead of spoiling it for you beforehand:
The opposing team throws the puck down ice and it looks to be in the empty net, but Graham is able to swoop in at the last second and grab it off the goal line, literally.
As play goes back up the other way, Saginaw is able to beat the Greyhounds while they’re changing as Kristoff Kontos puts the puck in the net. Unfortunately for Saginaw, that only cut the lead to 6-5 as they were down two at the time.
Over at Yahoo, Neate Seager provides some details on how Graham is fairing this season in Saginaw:
Graham is currently unsigned by the Islanders, and the team will have until June 1st of this year to figure out what to do with him. The Isles have two other defenders from the 2012 who will come due this year as well in Loic Leduc (3rd round) and Adam Pelech (2nd).
