Budding hockey star Nils Hoglander scored a wonder goal for Sweden at the 2020 WJC.

The 2020 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships are officially underway, and Friday afternoon's clash between Sweden and Finland provided a delicious goal. Heralded hockey prospect Nils Hoglander won the puck in the neutral zone and proceeded to drive at the Finland defense. How did the 19-year-old Swede cap the move? With a BRILLIANT wraparound goal that left the goalkeeper utterly bamboozled.

How did he pull that off? The goalie appeared to have all of his angles accounted for, but Hoglander still managed to squeeze the puck in the top right corner.

Nils Hoglander, ladies and gents. Remember the name.
