The lacrosse move is one of the most exciting in all of hockey but one former NHLer believes Gary Bettman will prohibit players from doing the move.

Lacrosse Move Scored Twice In The Same Night



Last night for the first time in NHL history, two players were able to pull off the lacrosse move on the same night.





The two are on the very short list of NHLers to pull off the feat. The list is Andrei Svechnikov, Filip Forsberg, Zegras, Kent Johnson, and Bedard.

However, the list may stay short as one former NHLer has predicted that the move will get banned soon.

Rosehill Predicts The Lacrosse Move Will Get Banned



Last night Jay Rosehill made a post to X, formerly known as Twitter, stating that he believed that the lacrosse move would get banned.


They will ban the Michigan in the next 2 years.

It is hard to see why the league would ban the move as it brings so much publicity to the sport but if they do so it would be quite disappointing.

Hopefully, the league keeps the move around and allows its brightest stars to get creative with the puck.
