A Brief History of Goalie Goals

I feel it is important to note the following things:

  • While there have been 15 goals scored by goalies, there have only been 12 goalies to score; Ron Hextall scored two and Martin Brodeur scored three.
  • Of the 15 goals scored, only eight of them have been scored by legitimate shots on goal from the goaltender’s stick to the net at the other end of the ice.
  • The other seven have been scored when a player scored an own-goal with the opposing team’s goaltender being the last opponent to touch the puck—an unnamed affiliate of this team doesn’t like to bring it up, brag about it, or even talk about it too much because he didn’t actually take a shot.
