After being selected No. 12 overall by the Anaheim Ducks in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Cam Fowler cracked the Ducks’ starting lineup and immediately made a splash during the 2010-2011 season.
In just sixth NHL game on Oct. 17, 2010, the rookie tallied his first career goal in the NHL against the Phoenix (now Arizona) Coyotes. That memorable moment led us to our trivia question on Friday.
Fowler would go on to have a successful rookie season in Anaheim as he compiled 40 points (10 G, 30 A) in 76 games. He was also selected to the 2011 All-Star team as part of the rookie squad.
Fowler’s 40 point performance during the 2010-2011 season still stands as the career-high for the young defenseman. He was well on his way to setting a new career-high last season, but a sprained MCL sidelined Fowler for nearly a month between March and April.
The 22-year old defenseman was also a part of Team USA in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Fowler scored his first and only goal during the Olympics against the host nation in the preliminary round.
His first career Olympic goal was scored against Russia’s Sergei Bobrovsky. How about his first career NHL goal?
