BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – Condors fans knew this small bundle of non-stop energy was special, but three weeks ago few hockey fans outside of Bakersfield knew much about Dan Sexton.
Now, the rest of the hockey world is getting an idea of just how good this 22-year old right winger from Apple Valley, Minn., might be.
Rushed to the National Hockey League due to Teemu’s Selanni’s broken hand, Sexton sparked Anaheim to a 4-3 overtime victory over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night in Anaheim as the Ducks rebounded from a 3-0 deficit.
Sexton, playing in just his third NHL game, scored his first NHL goal six minutes into the third period to make it 3-2 and got the game-tying goal with 62 seconds remaining. He was not on the ice for Saku Koivu’s game-winner in OT, but that really didn’t matter
