Get ready to see a work of art. Or is it just simply Minnesota Wild winger Thomas Vanek scoring a goal?

In Tuesday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets, Vanek tallied his second goal of the night using some sweet moves in the process. Vanek threw the puck between his legs to freeze Jets defenseman Paul Postma before placing a perfect shot top shelf past Ondrej Pavelec, who might have been stunned by the world-class dangle.

The goal put the Wild up 4–1 and marked Vanek’s sixth goal of the season.
