Remember Aito Iguchi? Sure you do. He was the 11-year-old stickhandling sensation that made his competition looks like they were wearing shoes out on the ice. Well, he’s back by popular demand.

Iguchi shows off another handful of his spectacular moves, including an incredible, spinning breakaway goal that you just have to see:

Is it too early to talk about how Iguchi is draft eligible in 2021?
