There was history made during the Northern Michigan and Michigan Tech game on Friday night. That’s because for only the 11 time in NCAA history a goalie scored a goal.
On Friday night, Northern Michigan’s goalie Atte Tolvanen became the newest member of the goalie goal scoring club. He scored a goal in the 5-3 win over Michigan Tech.

Who doesn’t love a good goalie goal and the celebrations that go along with them? The celebrations might be the best part of the entire goal.
