EDIT: Data lost in migration - 113 first-goals scored! I took over for this last year. Well enough received. Figured I'd start it up this year. I'll try to keep it updated to the best of my ability. Goals [sup]1[/sup] Kuraly's goal was scored in the playoffs; he has never scored a regular season NHL goal. [sup]2[/sup] Gaudreau's goal was scored in the playoffs; he has never scored a regular season NHL goal. And of course, with every first-goal you will hear fans lament, "Why do players always score their first against us?" Last year, Ottawa had the most first-goals against, with an impressive 9. They started off strong by having the first goal of the 2016–17 NHL season scored against them by Auston Matthews - his first career NHL goal. Most first-goals for last year was a tie between Chicago and Carolina, at 7 each. Click here for the 2015-16 thread.
