Anze Kopitar on his goal – ‘I learned that move from Brownie!’

It had to be a bit of deja vu for Anze Kopitar today.

Back on September 22nd he joined younger brother Gasper as a member of Mora IK in Sweden’s tier II league. Anze assisted on a goal late in the third period that day and his team went on to defeat Djurgarden in a shootout.

Since then, Mora has posted an impressive 8-4 record, with Anze picking up four goals and 14 points ts in those 12 games.

Today, Mora re-matched with Djurgarden – this time on the road.

Even so, the results were pretty much the same. The Kopitar brothers and their teammates trailed late in the third period when Anze scored a goal to tie things in the final minutes of regulation and Mora won in a shootout.

When MayorsManor first caught up with Anze after the game today he jokingly said, “I learned that move from Brownie!” (referring to Dustin Brown, captain of the LA Kings)

The always humble Kopitar later added, “Sometimes I can get a bit lucky and score like that.”

Watch the video for yourself. It’s anything but luck. This Kopitar kid seems like a pretty good player. Who knows, if the NHL ever returns, with moves like this he might score a few goals for the Kings too.
