Anyone interested in future NHL prospects should keep the name Nathan Pelletier in mind. The teen, who plays for the Burnaby Winter Club Hockey Academy, scored an incredible goal in a recent game as he showed off his impressive hand-eye coordination.

Pelletier dug a puck out of the corner and worked toward the net, where a teammate was waiting to bang home a pass. But when the opposing defense collapsed in on the passing lane, Pelletier simply chipped the puck up over a sliding defender and batted it out of mid-air past the goaltender. 

It's impressive awareness for a high school hockey player and an incredible show of skill. If Pelletier keeps it up, he might have a nice hockey career in his future.
