Video: Own-goal leaves Jack Eichel deflated

7 Comments

Own goals: they don’t necessarily happen to all of them, but it’s a mistake that’s afflicted some of the best.

Consider Tuesday an initiation for Buffalo Sabres star Jack Eichel, then, as he “beat” Robin Lehner for an own-goal to give the San Jose Sharks a 2-1 lead.

(Watch the goal in the video above.)

Hey, at least it wasn’t as rough as the own-goal suffered by Winnipeg Jets rookie Patrik Laine.
