ADIN HILL GETS TWO ASSISTS
For only the second time in franchise history, a San Jose Sharks goaltender scored two assists in a game. Adin Hill joins Sharks Alumni Vesa Toskala in becoming the only goalies to have two 'apples' in a single game.
Adin Hill's first career NHL point came off a simple touch pass to Brent Burns behind the net that lead to a stretch pass to Alexander Barabanov who beat Calgary Flames' goalie for a Sharks goal.
Adin Hill's 2nd assist occurred in the final minute of the game via an empty-net goal by Jonathan Dahlen. Hill became the 14th goaltender in NHL history to accomplish such a feat and gave old-time Sharks fans a pinch of nostalgia as Evgeni Nabakov's name was dropped as still being the only Sharks goaltender to score an NHL goal. Adin Hill's 2 point night comes with a great performance in net, in which he made 37 saves after previously having 3 straight losses in 3 starts in net. The strong play from Hill comes at a time when Sharks Territory is starting to lean towards James Reimer as the starting netminder. With his production against Calgary, Hill has regained the confidence of the fans and reintroduced himself into the starting role conversation.
