Zucker sets Wild mark for fastest goal, Jets' Little scores goal with head

Sunday October 25th, 2015

The Winnipeg Jets have had some trouble when it comes to scoring the first goal of the game, something they’ve done just once in seven tries this season. It took just :10 into their eighth game for those struggles to continue.

Off the opening faceoff, Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker collected the puck at the Winnipeg blue line and raced in, putting Jets defender Jacob Trouba on the wrong side of a highlight-reel tally.

Zucker’s goal set a franchise mark for the fastest goal in Wild history, breaking Justin Fontaine’s 12-second marker from 2013.

Bryan Little evened the score for the Jets just 1:12 later with a different type of highlight-reel goal, deflecting a rebound out of the air off his helmet and behind Minnesota goalie Darcy Kuemper.
