Facing the overmatched Colorado Avalanche on Friday, Anaheim Ducks forward Jiri Sekac wasted little time in going to work on the scoreboard.

Sekac was buzzing when he grabbed the puck and curled around Colorado's net, finishing the play with a spin-o-rama move and firing a shot into the net past goaltender Semyon Varlamov to notch the game's first goal.

It was Sekac's first goal as a Duck, and certainly one he won't forget any time soon.

 

Sekac, 22, was traded to the Ducks from the Montreal Canadiens last month for Devante Smith-Pelly. He had seven goals in 50 games for the Canadiens before the trade.
