The only thing better than a goalie goal is a goalie’s goal celebration, right?
Avalanche goalie Reto Berra, sent down to AHL Lake Erie on Jan. 10, notched a goal for the Monster, firing a shot the length of the ice and into the Chicago Wolves' empty net. Berra followed up the shot with a pretty good celebration, skating to the bench for high-fives like any other skater would do, and perhaps ruffled a few feathers with his zeal.
For those counting at home, it was indeed Berra's first goal of the season (at the AHL and NHL level), and marked just the 11th time in AHL history that a goalie found his name on that section of the scoresheet.
Before being sent down, Berra appeared in 10 games for Colorado, racking up a 3.57 GAA and .882 save percentage. He signed a three-year, $4.35 million deal with the team during the summer.
