ECHL goalie Brian Foster gets credited for bizarre goal score (video)

Own Goal

Back on Friday, a minor league hockey game between the ECHL’s Cincinnati Cyclones and the Trenton Titans saw one of the strangest goalie scores of all-time.

With about forty seconds to go in the first period, Cyclones goalie Brian Foster makes a simple save which then triggers a rather strange moment. The Titans had pulled their goalie to gain a man-advantage on offense but due to an errant pass by a Trenton player, the puck ended up going to the other end and landing in the goal.

Due to the scoring rules of hockey for own goals, the last Cyclone player to touch the puck gets credited with the goal and Foster being the last Cincinnati player to touch the puck got his first goal of his career:

Fun fact: In the history of the ECHL, it was the 11th goalie score in the minor league’s twenty-five year history.

    I was wondering why they would pull their goalie in the 1st period….I had to watch the video and see that there was a delayed penalty (ref with his arm up in the air). That’s why the goalie was pulled.
