Adam Fantilli isn’t from Michigan, but he’ll showcase his stick skills there in college.
The Chicago Steel forward and Michigan commit pulled off a Michigan, or lacrosse-style goal, against the Madison Capitals in a 4-2 loss Sunday at Fox Valley Ice Arena. Fantilli’s goal was his USHL-leading 22nd tally this season.
Fantilli gained possession of the puck in the offensive zone while making a spin then carried the puck behind the net. He lifted the puck with his stick and tucked it around former Steel teammate and Madison goalie Simon Latkoczy’s right shoulder 41 seconds into the third period.
Fantilli, a projected top-three prospect for the 2023 NHL Draft, is fourth in the USHL in scoring with 38 points (22 goals, 16 assists) in 27 games.
