When we’ve highlighted goalie gaffes in the past, a lot have come from the KHL, specifcally Erik Ersberg and Karri Ramo. Today’s blunder comes to us via Södertälje goaltender Sebastian Idoff of Sweden’s HockeyAllsvenskan.

During a pre-season game against Vasteras on Tuesday, Södertälje lost possession of the puck way down in the opponents’ end with the score tied at three. That’s when Vasteras defenseman Nick Angell took control of it and tried sending a pass up ice. It didn't connect and the puck continued toward Idoff.

That's when disaster struck. (Warning: auto-play video)

Brutal. Just brutal. The goal Vasteras a 4-3 lead en route to a 5-4 victory after a shootout.

"He stood there and was not really awake," said Vasteras sporting director sporting director Niklas Johansson to Sportbladet. "There were some guys in the middle zone which perhaps hid him. It was a little fun, they laughed."

Coaches always preach to just puck on the net and eventually good things will happen. In this case, a missed pass up ice took a fortunate turn for Angell and Vasteras.
