His mom has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Perhaps Liam Stewart's achievement Monday night will land him a spot in the magazine's Faces in the Crowd feature.
Stewart, the son of rock 'n' roll star Rod Stewart and model Rachel Hunter, scored the game-winning goal in overtime as the Spokane Chiefs defeated the Tri-City Americans 4-3 in the Western Hockey League playoffs.
"I just kind of closed my eyes and hoped for the best," the 17-year-old center told the Spokane Spokesman-Review. "Luckily, the best came to me and it went in."
The Chiefs' home victory pushed their Western Conference semifinal series to a deciding Game 7. The WHL is a top-tier junior hockey league that includes teams in western Canada and the US Northwest.
Liam Stewart scored 9 minutes, 33 seconds into overtime. He took a pass from teammate Connor Chartier on the left side and fired a shot high into the goal, past Tri-City goaltender Ty Rimmer. Stewart's teammates mobbed him on the ice in celebration.
