Tobias Rieder Scores Two Shorthanded Goals on One Penalty Kill

Within a 58 second span early  in the second period of Arizona’s game against Edmonton, Tobias Rieder managed to score not one, but two short handed goals. Both were scored on the same penalty kill, and both managed to be highlight reel efforts as well.

For the first goal, Rieder poked the puck away from Taylor Hall and skated in all alone on Viktor Fasth. Rieder made a nice back and forth move on Fasth before sliding the puck through his five hole and into the back of the net.

On the second goal, which came less than a minute later, Rieder received a beautiful leading pass from Martin Hanzal who had just blocked a shot. Hanzal’s pass was threaded between two Oilers defenseman, and allowed Rieder to break in with a ton of speed. Rieder managed to bury his shot on Fasth after being tripped by an Oilers defenseman.

Rieder would go on to earn first star honors of the game as the Coyotes beat the Oilers 5-2. He scored both short handed goals using a CCM RBZ Superfast stick.

Believe it or not, Tobias Rieder was actually drafted by the Oilers in the 4th round of the 2011 NHL Draft. He currently has 4 goals and 3 assists in 15 games so far this season, and carries a plus 7 rating so far.
