Ryan Reaves absolutely roasted some kids after scoring his first goal of the season, he finally got his revenge

Ryan Reaves brings a lot of qualities and important attributes to a team, but he’s not the most notorious goalscorer. In fact, before Wednesday, he hadn’t scored a single goal since being traded to the Minnesota Wild from the New York Rangers.

But against the New York Islanders, it finally happened. And not only did it mark the first goal for Reaves as a Wild, but it also marked the first goal for him this season.

The goal wasn’t a goal you’d expect to see from Reaves. He was in the right place to backhand a puck out of midair to beat Islanders goalie Ilya Sorokin.

Reaves’ goal tied the game at 1, and the Wild eventually won in a shootout. Reaves was praised for his goal, and it was nice for him to finally score after a lot of mockeries from opponents and fans.

Just a couple of days ago, Boston goalie Linus Ullmark had scored more goals this season than Reaves, so it’s fair to assume he was relieved to tie him at 1.

After the goal, Reaves also revealed that he’s been getting absolutely burned by a bunch of kids before scoring his first goals.

He also couldn’t resist roasting them after he eventually scored.

”I went to my kids hockey game yesterday and a bunch of other kids were there watching and they were just giving it to me saying they had more goals than me. So wherever you are, eat that,” Reaves said, per The Athletic reporter Joe Smith.

Ryan Reaves; what a hilarious guy, and we’re so thrilled for him to finally score his first goal of the year.
