There have been three KHL goaltenders credited with goals in the league's history, and last week former NHLer Jeff Deslauriers nearly added his name to the list.
With under 30 seconds to go in Dinamo Riga’s 3-1 win over Medvescak Zagreb last Friday, Deslauriers caught a dumped-in puck from center ice, allowing him more than enough time to take a stab at scoring a goal. His attempt was fine, but Zagreb's defenseman Mark Flood’s effort to prevent the goal was finer:
Deslauriers' eyes must have bee as big as saucers once he saw the trajectory and accuracy of his shot. But what an effort by fellow ex-NHLer Flood to go all out and prevent a potential goal as his team was down two with time running out.
