WATCH: Zayde Wisdom scores highlight-reel goal while falling

Zayde Wisdom scored yet another goal for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Friday night. This one was a beauty.

Just twenty seconds after the Phantoms fell into a 2-0 deficit to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, Wisdom got one back. He picked up a loose puck in the neutral zone and fended off a pair of defenders for the goal.

 

Let’s take another look at it from a different angle.

 

After picking up the puck he gets pushed and falls to a knee, but gets back up while controlling the puck. He then brings the puck to his backhand while being hit and goes top shelf for the goal.

 

What an absolutely amazing play.

Earlier in the game, Wisdom showed off his puck handling with an end-to-end rush that nearly resulted in a goal.

Zayde Wisdom is having a tremendous rookie season with the Phantoms. The 18-year-old forward would normally be playing in the Ontario Hockey League, but due to COVID, he is able to get some AHL experience. And he’s making the most of it.

WATCH: Zayde Wisdom scores two goals in second straight game

Wisdom now has six points (five goals, one assist) in his first six games. All of those points have come in his last four games.

The fourth-round selection is looking better and better by the game. He has five goals in his first six AHL games. That’s incredible for anyone, let alone someone that isn’t necessarily a top prospect.

Wisdom is a hard-working player that will never give up on a play – as displayed with this effort. He is already making his mark in the Philadelphia Flyers organization with an extremely impressive start to his AHL career with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
