Joe Thornton gets credited with the most bizarre goal of the young NHL season

When you stick 12 grown men with knives attached to their shoes on a frozen ice surface and let them chase around a vulcanized rubber biscuit with sticks, weird things are bound to happen. This Joe Thornton goal against the Canucks certainly classifies as weird.

Watch as Thornton attempts to fire the puck around the glass before it ricochets towards the net and takes a weird hop over – and then into – the goal. There was pretty much nothing Roberto Luongo could do to stop it.




I know it’s still early but this is probably going to up there in weirdest goals of the 2013-2014 NHL season.
