From Wikipedia, the list of goalies credited with scoring goals in the NHL 1979-80: Billy Smith (NYI) was credited with a goal after a player on the (now extinct) Colorado Rockies scored on his own team Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rysR61Wb2yA (looks almost exactly like Ward's goal) 1987-88: Ron Hextall (PHI) became the first goalie in history to score the rare empty net goal against the Bruins Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JHSXkD98_k 1988-89: Ron Hextall, (PHI) not satisfied yet became the first (and only) goalie to score in back-to-back seasons, the first goalie to score in the playoffs, and the first (and only) goalie to score a shorthanded goal in this game against the Capitals Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PLa3q9V9j4 1995-96: The one most of us here remember fondly, Chris Osgood (DERP) scores an empty netter against the now defunct Hartford Whalers Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2nHWAKouas 1996-97: Martin "Fatty" Broduer (DERP DERP) scores a postseason empty netter against the Montreal Canadians. Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwOT9VVzzVA 1998-99: Damian Rhodes (OTT) credited with a goal after Devils player Scott Niedermayer puts the puck into his own net Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8FlBhHjfno 1999-2000: Fatty Broduer (DERRRRRRP) scores again, this time after a Flyers player scores for him and is credited with the first (and only) game winning goal ever scored by a goaltender. Video: Unfortunately none could be found. If someone else knows of one let me know 2000-01: Jose Theodore (MTL) scores an empty netter against the Islanders Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKQ1wabPx94 2001-02: Evgeni Nabokov (SJS) scores the only PP goal (the 4th consecutive season a goalie scored) in history (for goalies obviously) against the Canucks. This was also the last time a goalie scored by shooting the puck into an empty net. The next 3 were all scored by the opposing team. Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3PMdKgh7Ic 2003-04: Mika Noronen (BUF) is credited with a goal after a Leafs player scores on his own team. This would be the only thing Noronen ever did as no one remembers him. Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-PfPOkQjng 2005-06: Finally we have Chris Mason (NAS) who was given a freebie off of the Coyotes Video: None could be found :( The Wiki article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_goaltenders_who_have_scored_a_goal_in_an_NHL_game So there you have it. Bets for the next goalie who scores a goal will begin being taken January 1st 2012.
