Time was running out on Harry Zolnierczyk's first ever NHL game and matters had long since been decided. In the closing minute, with the Flyers already ahead 6-1, "Harry Z" took the puck and cut around the D in the left circle moving towards the goalie. Quickly moving the puck to his backhand he was able to flip it up and over the Ottawa goalie's poke-check attempt and into the net.

It was the first ever NHL goal for the 24-year-old out of Brown University, and came in his first ever NHL game. With only 45 seconds remaining to give Philadelphia a 7-1 lead it was essentially a meaningless goal for the game itself. But for Zolnierczyk it was a huge moment capping a whirlwind day in which he found out only hours earlier he would be meeting the team in Ottawa to take the ice in the National Hockey League for the first time ever.

Zolnierczyk was the MVP and captain at Brown University and also Player of the Year in the Ivy League with 16 goals in 30 games. He joined the Adirondack Phantoms late last season and scored three goals and four assists in 16 games. Still technically a rookie going into this season, Zolnierczyk is the first Phantoms player this season to receive a call-up to Philly.
