Erie Otters Forward Plays Goal

"Erie Otters’ Forward Plays Goalie, Allows 13 Goals Against, Named Game’s First Star

With one of their goaltenders, Devin Williams, sidelined with a concussion he sustained a few days earlier, and none of their other options in goal available for Sunday’s game, the Otters were forced to dress only one goaltender with the hope that Ramis Sadikov would not sustain an injury during the game.

And wouldn’t you know, less than two minutes into the game Sadikov was steamrolled by an Ice Dogs player, forcing him out of action.

Enter Otters’ forward Connor Crisp.

Crisp had been out of the Otters’ line-up since September with a shoulder injury, and he probably never imagined that when he returned to the ice he’d be standing between the pipes playing goal for his team. But once Sadikov’s return to the game was ruled out, Crisp headed to the dressing room and his transition from player to goalie began.

It sure was a long day for Crisp, as he allowed 13 goals on 45 shots during the Otters’ 13-4 loss to the Ice Dogs. But despite posting an incredibly bad goals against average and save percentage, Crisp was still awarded the game’s first star and a standing ovation from the Ice Dogs’ fans."

I didn't know where else to put it, but I felt it needed to be told.

"Around the League", does have this in in the subtitle,,,"Want to sound off on the NHL or other teams?"

Looks like this thread qualifies. ;)
