Canadians Arsene Khisamutinov, currently playing for the Trois-Riviers Lions in the ECHL, scored a stunning goal against the Newfoundland Groilers on Friday night.
Although Joan appeared alone behind two enemies at the entrance, the Russian was surprisingly impressed by the muzzle of one of his roofers, and then completed his crazy sequence by firing an accurate shot into the skylight.
Khisamuttinov, created by CH in the sixth round of the 2019 draft, played in the KHL during the 2019-2020 season. He made his debut with Laval Rocket last year.
The first victory awaits
As for the game, the Trois-Rivières Lions failed to sign the first win in their history, in their second duel, at the Coliseum Videotron on Friday, once again falling in front of the Groilers, this time from 3 to 1 mark.
