Kings third-round selection in the 2019 NHL Draft becomes the first goaltender in Western Hockey League history to record a shutout and score a goal in the same gameby LA Kings @LAKings / LAKings.com
LA Kings prospect Lukas Parik was already having an amazing game for the Spokane Chiefs.
The netminder had turned aside all 36 shots he faced on his way to his first shutout of the season, but he has his sights set on something even more memorable.
With just under 50 seconds remaining and the opposing goaltender pulled for the Kamloops Blazers, Parik corralled the puck, and looked up ice toward the vacant net...
Parik sealed the victory by scoring his first-ever goal and became the first goalie in WHL history to score a goal and record a shutout in the same game.
For the season, the No. 87 overall pick at the 2019 NHL Draft now has a 22-7-2 record while posting a 2.73 goals against average and a .917 save percentage for the playoff bound Chiefs.
