When a Goalie becomes a Hero

The goalie goal – it’s a fan favourite, yet it’s such a rare occurrence in a hockey game. But when it does happen, that net-minder literally gets all the spotlight.

The latest is Winnipeg Jets prospect Mikhail Berdin, who currently plays for the Sioux Falls Stampede in the USHL.

Berdin makes the most of it and really owns the celebration, one that will definitely see him highlighted on sport shows around the world today.


Martin Brodeur might have some competition on his hands – but his goalie goal against the Montreal Canadiens during the 1997 Stanley Cup playoffs remains the gold standard.
