Loudoun youth Jack Messick successfully replicated "The Michigan" to score a dazzling goal during a recent hockey tournament.

"The Michigan" is defined as a hockey trick that consists of scooping up the puck with the blade of the stick and tucking it into the net. The trick is done entirely from behind the net where the player picks up the puck and -- in one continuous move -- tucks it in the top corner of the goal.

Messick, an 11-year-old from Sterling, plays hockey for the Ashburn Xtreme.
