When a player records his first NHL point, it’s common practice to retrieve the puck for him as a keepsake.
If you’ve ever wondered how a team handles a situation where one player records his first goal and another picks up his first career point via assist on the same play, well the Edmonton Oilers have provided us with an answer.
You cut the puck in half, of course.
Defenceman Martin Marincin scored his first NHL goal on a feed from Andrew Miller during the first period of the Oilers’ 4-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche Wednesday night.
Miller’s assist stands as his first career NHL point. He would add a second helper to his stats page later via Taylor Hall’s 12th goal of the season.
Fair is fair.
