Lake Erie Monsters goaltender Reto Berra made a little history Friday night becoming the 11th goaltender in American Hockey League history to score a goal.

However, the Chicago Wolves, who dropped the game 5-1, weren’t happy with how the goaltender celebrated.

Forward Colin Fraser stepped in to let Berra know as you can see from the video.

“It’s not everyday a goalie scores and congrats to him. Celebrate it by all means. I just didn’t like the fly-by by our bench and rubbing it in,” Fraser told PHT. “It was a tough end to a tough game for us.

“We haven’t been playing well and I was frustrated.”

Chicago coach John Anderson wasn’t happy with the celebration either.

“I think it’s a wonderful play by him. I just didn’t think that the way he celebrated was necessary,” Anderson told Brian Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-Times. “I think their guys would’ve come down (to him). They were happy for him. (Heck) of a play. Good for him.

“To do that and jump up and down… again it’s a wonderful thing, but come on. You’re in the other team’s building. You can’t show them up like that.”
