of the Binghamton Senators became the 10th goaltender in the American Hockey League’s 74-year history to be credited with scoring a goal. Holt shot the puck into an empty-net to seal his team’s 4-2 win over the Rochester Americans at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena in Binghamton, N.Y., on Friday night.
With Rochester goaltender Alexander Salak
on the bench for an extra attacker in the final minute of regulation, Holt sent the puck the length of the ice and into the vacated net. He is the sixth AHL goalie to score by actually shooting the puck into the net -- as opposed to being the last player on his team to play the puck before an opposing team puts the puck into its own net.
Holt also made 30 saves on the night to earn the victory for Binghamton.
Nine NHL goaltenders have been credited with goals during regular-season games. Two of the nine -- Philadelphia's Ron Hextall
and New Jersey's Martin Brodeur
-- have also scored goals in playoff games.
