Only five play­ers have scored a goal in the shootout in their NHL de­but, but only one scored the game-win­ner. On April 3, 2017, Ev­geni Svech­nikov scored the only goal of the shootout, in the sev­enth round no less, to give Detroit a 5-4 win over Ottawa. The only other player to score in a win­ning cause was Toronto’s Tim Sta­ple­ton (Feb. 26, 2009). Other SO scor­ers in their NHL de­buts: Li­nus Omark (Edmonton, Dec. 10, 2010, loss), Mats Zuc­carello (NY Rangers, Dec. 23, 2010, loss), and Reid Boucher (New Jer­sey, Dec. 4, 2013, loss).
