October 13, 2018— Scoring His First NHL Goal
Every player remembers how surreal it feels to score their first NHL goal. Although Kiefer Sherwood’s first goal was during a game the team would like to forget, this is a moment he will remember for the rest of his career.
The Dallas Stars had been controlling the game for a majority of the first period. However, despite their evident struggles, the Anaheim Ducks managed to strike first with a goal from Jakob Silfverberg. John Gibson’s amazing performance kept them in the game, that is, until the second period.

About halfway through the first period, Isac Lundestrom got the puck on his stick and skated it up the ice. Josh Manson was in a great position on the blue line, and as he skated past, Lundestrom sent a beautiful pass to his teammate. What made Manson’s position so perfect was the fact that the Stars were unable to get in a shooting lane to block his shot.
Sherwood worked his way in front of the net, and as Manson sent a wrist shot his way, he managed to get his stick on the puck and tap it in past Antoin Khudobin. Sherwood celebrated in typical Sherwood fashion, with a big smile on his face. He would go on to score 5 more goals before the season ended, but this is a puck and a memory he will want to hold onto for a while.
