ECHL goalie scores a bizarre goal


The goal the Brian Foster was credited with on Friday night during ECHL action between the Cincinnati Cyclones and the Trenton Titans was simply bizarre.  Foster, the goalie for the Cyclones makes a pretty innocent save at the start of the video, and that ends up being the last time the Cyclones touch the puck.

This is from Cincinnati’s post-game wrap on their website:

During a delayed penalty against Cincinnati, the Titans pulled their goalie in favor of the extra skater. However, as a Trenton player sent an errant pass through the middle, the puck careened all the way down the ice and into the empty net. Since Brian Foster (W, 28 saves, 17-6-4) was the last Cyclones player to touch the puck, he was credited with his first professional goal at 19:32. It was the first time in club history and the 11th time in ECHL history that a goalie had earned a goal. After 20 minutes, it was 1-0 Cincy.

The Cyclones went on to win the game 2-1, and Foster finished with 28 saves and was named the games #1 star.  It may be quite a long time before you see another goalie goal, let alone a goalie goal where he doesn’t even shoot it.
