Calgary Flames prospect John Gaudreau showed off some of the nifty moves, which earned him the 2014 Hobey Baker award Friday night at the Young Stars tournament.

Gaudreau, 21, undressed Winnipeg Jets’ defenseman Nelson Nogier before going backhand shelf on goaltender Connor Hellebuyck.

Have a look:

The 2011 fourth-round pick (104th overall) helped the Flames erase a 4-2 deficit to defeat the Jets 6-4 in their first game of the tournament.

The 5-foot-7, 150-pound forward scored 36 goals and 80 points during the 2013-14 season with Boston College. Gaudreau scored his first NHL goal in his lone game with the Flames last season, a 5-1 loss in Vancouver on April 13.
