Montour Sets NHL Record For Fastest Shorthanded Goals By A Defenceman
The Buffalo Sabres finally won, snapping their 18 game losing streak, and former Tilbury resident Brandon Montour set an NHL record in the process.
Montour set the NHL marker for fastest consecutive shorthanded goals by a defenceman. He scored two goals only 37-seconds apart in the third period of Buffalo’s 6-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers.
That gives the 26-year-old 4 goals and 12 points on the season.
He is considered a trade target heading toward the NHL trade deadline as the former Chatham-Kent Cyclone is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
