0 of 15

    The spin-o-rama is one of the most exciting ways to score goals in hockey, and it's even more impressive when a player executes it perfectly in a real NHL game.

    The move is hard to do perfect, but it is a valuable weapon if you can pull it off, especially in shootouts.

    Let's look at some amazing spin-o-rama goals.

Steven Stamkos

1 of 15

    Steven Stamkos is the best young player in the NHL, and right here he beats Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price on a penalty shot after being hooked on the play before.

Mikhail Grabovski

2 of 15

    Toronto Maple Leafs center Mikhail Grabovski scores in a shootout against the Washington Capitals with a nice spin-o-rama.

    Not typically his style, but Grabovski executes it well.

Ville Leino

3 of 15

    Ville Leino's first career goal was certainly one to remember, as he beat a defender and the goalie to score as a member of the Detroit Red Wings.

Valeri Kamensky

4 of 15

    Valeri Kamensky of the Colorado Avalanche scores a wonderful spin-o-rama goal while in midair. Just an unbelievable piece of skill.

Cam Neely

5 of 15

    Boston Bruins forward Cam Neely is one of the best power forwards and goal scorers in recent memory. This spin-o-rama goal was just one of his many spectacular career goals.

Brian Leetch

6 of 15

    New York Rangers legend Brian Leetch was a great offensive defenseman, and it wasn't the skill that impressed with this goal, although that was good, too.

    The amazing part is that it was scored in Game 7 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals against Martin Brodeur, no less.

Denis Savard

7 of 15

    Hockey legend Denis Savard scored two great goals for the Montreal Canadiens. His spin-o-ramas even have their own name, The Savardian Spin-O-Rama.

Todd Bertuzzi

8 of 15

    Whether you like Todd Bertuzzi or not, you have to admit this spin-o-rama goal is awesome. Totally fools Chicago Blackhawks goalie Antti Niemi.

Jason Blake

9 of 15

    The Toronto Maple Leafs' Jason Blake executes this spin-o-rama to perfection.

Doug Gilmour

10 of 15

    Doug Gilmour shows great patience and skill behind the net to score a wonderful spin-o-rama goal and lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to victory.

Ryan Shannon

11 of 15

    Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Shannon scores a great spin-o-rama shootout goal against the Chicago Blackhawks, and Khabibulin gets angry.

Maxim Afinogenov

12 of 15

    Buffalo Sabres forward Maxim Afinogenov scores a fantastic goal with great skill against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Pierre-Marc Bouchard

13 of 15

    Pierre-Marc Bouchard scores a wonderful spin-o-rama goal for the Minnesota Wild against the San Jose Sharks in the shootout.

    If Bouchard had not scored, the Sharks would have won.

Bobby Ryan

14 of 15

    Anaheim Ducks winger Bobby Ryan finishes his hat trick against the Los Angeles Kings with an amazing spin-o-rama move for the goal.

Rene Bourque

15 of 15

    Rene Bourque shows a great piece of skill for this goal with a toe-drag move and a spin-o-rama. Awesome goal.
