Watch the first NHL goal of (almost) every current Bruin

Thanks to Anton Blidh, we take a trip to the past!

Anton Blidh scored his first National Hockey League goal last night, bouncing one in off of Nick Leddy and past Thomas Greiss.

With that, everyone (except you, Noel Acciari) has a first goal of their own. Time to take a trip down memory lane!


Patrice Bergeron

While there is no video online of his first goal, he tallied it on October 18th, 2003, knocking in a rebound of a Brian Rolston shot past Roman Cechmanek on a power play. In its stead, we have him and Steve Dangle re-living the glory (and for Dangle, agony) of his two Game 7 goals vs the Leafs.

Dominic Moore

Same treatment for you, Dominic Moore. His came in his first stint with the Rangers against the Habs. He has a phenomenal story, for those who don’t know.

David Backes

Ahh, now back to goals. The next most recent Bruin to score after Moore was David Backes in this game against the Kings.

David Krejci

We jump to 2008, where David Krejci got his first career marker in a Tim Thomas shutout victory.

Brad Marchand

Marchy got his start on a shorthanded breakaway in 2010 against the Buffalo Sabres.

Jimmy Hayes

Large Jim wasn’t always bad at scoring goals. He got his first when he was a member of the Chicago Blackhawks in a game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Riley Nash

The former Carolina Hurricane scored his first NHL goal and subsequently crashed right into the boards. No celly for you!

Tim Schaller

Before he was a Bruin, the Merrimack native was a Buffalo Sabre. His first career goal happened to come against his future team.

David Pastrnak

The gawd Pasta made his mark on the NHL with two goals against the Flyers in Philly then two more back home against the Lightning his next game. It all had to start with this one.

Ryan Spooner

While there are rumors of Spooner being moved now, he was finally proving to be a valuable asset in Boston when he scored his first NHL goal.

Frank Vatrano

We're waiting for Frankie V to crack the lineup (please soon), but his first goal was a sweet one against the rival Canadiens.

Austin Czarnik

The most recent Bruins forward to grab his first NHL goal before Blidh was Czarnik, a knuckle-puck past Henrik Lundqvist.


Zdeno Chara

The elder statesman of the blue line and captain of the B’s used a half slapper to nab his first as a member of the New York Islanders.

Adam McQuaid

In another B’s-Habs sweet moment, Quaider got his in 2010, at the Bell Centre too.

Kevan Miller

Miller’s first goal came in 2013 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Torey Krug

Bruins fans certainly know the cinderella story that became Torey Krug when he got called up in the 2013 Eastern Conference semifinals again the Rangers. 4 goals in 5 games started off here at TD Garden.

Colin Miller

Chiller was known for his heavy slapshot in the AHL when he came over in the Milan Lucic trade, and he used it go tally his first goal.

Brandon Carlo

Most recently, Carlo gave the B’s insurance in an important early season win over the Winnipeg Jets at the beginning of this season.
