Marian would have done super playing in the AHL, but would he want to do that just to drop down to a level where he could play with his brother ??

My mom hates him to this day. They are/were season ticket holders, and my Mom's favorite player was Rick MacLeish. During that game MacLeish took a shot that beat the goal was was trickling into an empty net. Al Hill knocked it in before it crossed the line.

MacLeish ended the season with 49 goals.

Not sure if it was his first shot or not, but Ilka Sinisalo became the first, and i think is still the only player to score his first goal on a penalty shot.

It was in the 3rd period of his 2nd game.

Don Murdoch of the Rangers in 1975 (or so) scored on his first shot too, I believe.

Richard Park roofed a BEAUTY upstairs on his first shift with his first shot in NHL as a Penguino on a short handed 2 on 1. Watching him do that and remembering how highly touted he was until his draft year convinced me that he was gonna have an outstanding NHL career...who knew that he would be bounced around from city to city and end up a utility (sort of) guy in Minnesota?

Seems like lot of guys are given second and third chances in Minnesota...Daigle is a perfect example...and in an odd sort of way, even Patrick O'Sullivan is kind of given another chance there after everybody else passed up on him...

I think (pretty sure actually) that Reggie Savage became the 2nd player to score his first goal on a penalty shot

Rick Nash, possibly?

I know he scored in his first game with the CBJ.

Yeah, but he's been mentioned before..

A player I didn't see here is Lucky Luc Robitaille (I might've missed him, though). He scored on his very first shot.

I can't believe nobody mentioned Rob Ray yet. He also had an assist that game, but he turned down the opportunity to fight, effectively ruining his only chance of having the Gordie Howe Hat Trick in his entire career. He did make up for it though, by scoring a beautiful goal facing away from the net against the Leafs in the playoffs. Still one of the best Sabres moments, in my opinion.
