GOTTA SEE IT: Fehervary Scores Weirdest Goal Of Year For Capitals

Washington Capitals defenseman Martin Fehervary scored what may be the strangest goal of the season against the Columbus Blue Jackets.



Washington Capitals defenseman Martin Fehervary wasn't trying to score against the Columbus Blue Jackets, but a play in front of the net led to him scoring one of the strangest goals of the 2022-23 season.

Fehervary was setting up a screen in front of the net in the second period as Washington piled on the pressure in search of the go-ahead goal. Dylan Strome got a hold of the puck in front and fired a quick shot on goal, and Fehervary jumped up to get out of the puck's way. However, as he was landing, the puck hit his head and went up and over the defense and Elvis Merzlikins in front and ultimately, into the back of the goal.

Here's the play:

Fehervary is now up to three goals on the season. Strome and Alex Alexeyev were credited with the helpers on that tally, which put the Capitals up 3-2.
