Sound the alarms! We’ve got a goalie goal!
It was the first goal courtesy of a netminder in the team’s history. The Penguins won the game 5-1.
Carolina Hurricanes prospect Alex Nedeljkovic scored for the Charlotte Checkers during the 2017-18 season but goalie goals are extremely rare in the AHL. In fact, Jarry’s marked just the 14th time in league history that a goaltender has been credited with a goal.
TFW you score the first goalie goal in @WBSPenguins history.

There hasn’t been a goalie goal in the NHL since early in the 2013-14 season when Mike Smith, then of the Phoenix Coyotes, scored against the Detroit Red Wings.
