MEDICINE HAT, AB — Every player remembers their first WHL goal.

Rarely are they as tenacious and highlight-reel-worthy as Corson Hopso's gem from Sunday night.

The 17-year-old rookie for the Medicine Hat Tigers, playing his 11th career game, took a page out of Sidney Crosby's playbook. He blocked a shot in his own zone, one-armed his way around a Calgary Hitmen defender, and knifed it over-top the goaltender with one hand to open the scoring.

Jubilation erupted from the Tigers bench, congratulating the Duncan, B.C. product on a remarkable effort.

Hopwo explained to CHAT Sports how he was able to pull off the incredible move, plus several teammates share their thoughts on what's sure to be one of the nicest Tigers goals of the season.
