Phoenix Coyotes Goalie Mike Smith Scored an Improbable Goal

Mike Smith became the 11th goaltender in NHL history to score a goal with this empty-netter against Detroit. Smith’s full-ice effort crossed the goal line with just one tenth of a second remaining and was upheld after a review.

The unlikely tally put an exclamation point on the Coyotes’ 5-2 win.

Smith also scored a goal in 2002 while playing for Lexington in the East Coast Hockey League.
