Moose G MacIntyre records winning goal

Feb 21, 2008 - 4:47 AM SPRINGFIELD, Massachusetts (Ticker) -- Drew MacIntyre etched his name in the American Hockey League record book, with a little help from the Chicago Wolves.

MacIntyre became the ninth goaltender in league history to be credited with a goal as the Manitoba Moose posted a 2-1 overtime victory over the Wolves on Wednesday.

With the game even at 1-1 and a delayed penalty upcoming against Manitoba's Jason Jaffray, Chicago pulled netminder Ondrej Pavelec for an extra attacker. However, an errant pass by a member of the Wolves went the length of the ice and into the vacant net, giving the Moose the victory.

Having been the last Manitoba player to touch the puck, MacIntyre was credited with the goal, becoming the first goalie in the AHL to receive the distinction since Seamus Kotyk of the Milwaukee Admirals on April 17, 2005.

A fourth-round pick of the Detroit Red Wings in 2001 who appeared in two games with the Vancouver Canucks earlier this season, MacIntyre joined current Philadelphia Flyers netminder Antero Niittymaki as the only AHL goalies to be credited with an overtime goal.
