Are you ready for your daily dose of ‘feel old, yet’?

On Sunday, Carolina Hurricanes rookie Andrei Svechnikov scored his first career NHL goal in an 8-5 win over the New York Rangers.

A nice deflection by the former Barrie Colt ended up being the game-winner, and a moment the youngster will never forget. Neither will the record books.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft became the first ever player born in the 2000s to score a goal in the National Hockey League.

Carolina’s victory vaulted the club to a 2-0-1 record to start the season, and though it’s early in the campaign, the club is celebrating its two points with style.
