THE GOAL SCORERS: HOCKEY'S TWO-WAY GOALIES

In hockey, a "two-way" player is one who is considered to have a positive impact both offensively and defensively. For a goaltender (who we can assume is focused on defensive efforts) to be a "two-way goaltender", then, they must also contribute to the scoresheet. This (obviously humorous) definition yields the following list of goaltenders who have scored a goal in the professional, major junior, or collegiate ranks.

CAVEAT: This list is by no means claimed to be complete. If you have any documented additions for me (professional, major junior, or collegiate only, please), send them my way! Thank you to Alan Caldwell, Jason Bau, Mark Obermayer, Jocke Persson, and statistics, Parker McDonald and eva unit zero (from HFBoards) for additions to the list
