Mike Legg (born May 25, 1975) is a Canadian former ice hockey player. He is most famous for a goal he scored while playing for the University of Michigan, in a 1996 NCAA Tournament game against the University of Minnesota, in which he picked the puck up onto his stick behind the net and wrapped it around into the top corner of the net. The goal was widely recognized around the hockey world; Legg was awarded "Goal of the Year" by Inside Hockey and the stick he used was donated to the Hockey Hall of Fame.[1] This move is often referred to as a 'Michigan' or 'Lacrosse Move' (because of its origins in lacrosse), and has since been attempted by many other players, including Sidney Crosby.
