Trevor Zegras provides ‘Michigan’-style lacrosse aim to spotlight reel

In the most famous goal Trevor Zegras was involved (so far) he set up Sonny Milan for an alley-oop goal, essentially reshuffling the goal “Michigan” or lacrosse style. But, hey, you gotta keep the defense honest by making sure they know* you can pull off the actual move, right?* During Thursday’s game against the Canadiens, the Ducks’ rising star Trevor Zegras actually added a lacrosse-style goal from “Michigan” added to his already growing highlight role.

That raises some burning questions.

  • Which goal is better, Zegras scoring that “Michigan” goal or Zegras fielding Sonny Milano with his own version of the lacrosse style setup?

  • What tricks will Zegras have up its sleeve? for the upcoming Breakaway Challenge during NHL All-Star Weekend 2022?
  • Will we see another spate of lacrosse-style goals? Nice way to shake things up as we are in the dog days of the NHL season.

As of this writing, Zegras scored twice against the Canadians, which put him on 12 goals and 32 points in 40 games – assuming he doesn’t add more on Thursday.

While the habs get beat up Jake Evans added a big goal of their own, so enjoy this as a bonus:

* – At this rate, defenses are likely assuming that Zegras can work wonders. They just don’t know how to stop him.

Westford Academy lacrosse captains elevate cash, consciousness for psychological well being

WESTFORD – On June 3, the Westford Academy’s varsity and JV lacrosse teams dedicated their game to promoting mental health awareness and breaking the mental health stigma, raising $ 700 for St. Vincent de Paul in the process.

The WA lacrosse players presented their team with mental health awareness t-shirts as well as their rival Concord-Carlisle’s college and JV players that day. At the end of the game, both teams stood together to raise awareness of the mental health problems of teenagers and young adults.

WA Co-Captain Cole Barisano took the lead on the project, along with fellow Captains Brian Ellis, Matty Sepe and Craig Tucker. Cole lost a friend to suicide two years ago and wanted to honor the friend’s memory.

The four captains posted a message to the Westford community: “As we complete our high school lacrosse careers at Westford Academy, we as captains as a team and with our community want to help end the stigma surrounding mental health problems. We’d like to invite Concord Carlisle athletes and parents to stand together before the varsity game against Westford Academy on June 3rd. Westford Academy’s boys’ lacrosse will accept donations for St. Vincent de Paul. St. Vincent de Paul provides financial support for low-income families and assistance in finding mental health services for anyone in need. “
