In just his 15th NHL game with the Coyotes, Tobias Rieder has etched his name into the team's record book.

On Monday night, Rieder scored a pair of a shorthanded goals against the Oilers, both of which came, incredibly, on the same penalty kill:

Edmonton drafted the right winger 114th overall in 2011, but he was dealt to Phoenix (now Arizona) in 2013 before ever playing a game with the Oilers.

The pair of shorties in one game tie Keith Tkachuk's franchise record, set on April 7, 1995 (when the team was known as the Winnipeg Jets) against Vancouver. It took Tkachuk 17:02 to accomplish the mark—16:04 longer than Rieder needed. Despite his impressive feat, Rieder still has a ways to go to match Dave McLlwain's team record of seven shorthanded goals in a season, set in 1989-90.
