Certain moments in a young player’s life will never be forgotten—even in garbage time.
Tyson Jost, Colorado’s first pick at No. 10 out of the University of North Dakota, scored his first NHL goal Thursday night at The Can with his ever-supporting grandfather in the audience. The goal came off a pass from captain Gabriel Landeskog and was tipped by Rocco Grimaldi before finding the stick of Jost for the top-shelf beauty. Of course, the Avs would go on to lose the game to the Wild 4-3 on a controversial call to continue their historically bad season, but not without sprinkling some highlights here and there.
