A new KHL goal scoring record has been set this season – but the old record wasn’t broken by Ilya Kovalchuk, Alex Radulov or any other player you might expect.

Steve Moses, an undrafted 5-foot-9 forward from Leominster, Mass., scored the record-setting 36th goal on a penalty shot Wednesday.

Moses, 25, played four seasons at the University of New Hampshire and scored 22 goals and 35 points in 37 games as a senior. He played eight games with the Connecticut Whale of the AHL in 2011-12 before signing on with Jokerit of the Finnish League. This season, Jokerit joined the KHL, and Moses has been a point-per-game player through 57 games. There are 60 games in the season.
