Video: Sam Bennett passes the puck to himself, scores nifty backhand goal

When you are one of the top picks in any given year in the NHL draft, you will enter the league with a chip on your shoulder. Sometimes you live up to expectations and other times you let the pressure get the best of you. Last night, Sam Bennett tallied a hat trick in the first period. Just how impressive could his fourth goal be after his early accomplishments?

Apparently pretty damn impressive. The Flames have been a bit of an enigma this year but if they can solve this puzzle, I am sure Bennett will be a big key to their success.
