Video: Rickard Rakell shows off some behind-the-back stickhandling

Handling a puck is hard, but Rickard Rakell makes it look easy.

Rakell, the Swedish born forward, is having himself a bit of a breakout season playing on the Ducks. While a goal wasn’t the end result of the play, it is easy to see why Rakell is starting to leave a mark on an Anaheim team that has its eyes on a Stanley Cup.

Maybe come playoff time Rakell will score a goal with his eyes closed. This will be a pretty tough act to follow.
