    Any known instances of this? Trying to avoid defensemen filling in at wing or forwards filling in on defense. Simply just looking for 3 true defenseman that have combined on a scoring play.

    There have been 126 such goals since 1917/18 season, out of about 255K scored with three participants (~ 0.05%):
    Note: I only have current or latest positions the players played. They might've have different deployment at the time of the goal.

    Are we thinking the most common scenario here is a defenseman served a penalty, two defensemen were on the penalty kill, then the serving player got out of the box and got the puck passed to him (from one of the PK D, in turn from the other PK D) and went in to score?

    I assume so. I checked the last goal, it's a such one.

    Great list.

    More than likely Jimmy Roberts was being used as a Forward for most if not all the Goals he was involved in.

    Unfortunately, it looks like the NHL squashed the information from the original boxscores and only referenced the latest assignment. I checked the goal
    1971/04/08: DAL at STL @ 43:45JIMMY ROBERTSCARL BREWERBARCLAY PLAGER
    and STL has seven D on the roster of that game: three Plagers, two Arbours, Picardo and Roberts.
    Similarly, with the recent Byfuglien goal - the game it was scored had WPG with seven D, although I am sure Buff was used as a RW.

    Well....

    They can be listed at any position. That by no means that is the position they played during the game.

    Roberts is a tough one. He did play a lot of D with the Blues but to be honest he probably played even more Wing especially after his 1st season here.

    Fun list!

    Baldy Northcott, Reg Fleming, Jimmy Roberts, Dale Tallon and Ron Greschner were probably playing forward for their goals.

    Scott Stevens’ goals circa 1985 probably came on the power play while playing in front of the net, not as a defenceman.
