Under NHL rules, no. This would be considered "high sticking". Angling the blade of your skate to deflect a moving puck into the goal is allowed, but not actively "kicking" it.

Who scored the goal in the NHL?

When the phrase "the goal" is used by NHL people, fans and media, two are usually thought of: 1. Bobby Orr's flying through the air goal to win the Stanley Cup for the Boston Bruins in overtime against the St. Louis Blues on May 10, 1970. 2. Alexander Ovechkin's up-ice rush, then scoring while flat on his back with a behind the head flick at the puck against the Phoenix Coyotes on Jan. 15, 2006.

Can you score a goal in the nhl by repositioning your skate?

Yes, according to Rule 49 of the official rule book. As long as there is no distinct kicking motion, when puck is deflected off of or is directed by an attacking players skate into the net it shall be counted as a goal. The only situations in which a kicking motion is allowed to score a goal is when the puck deflects off of the players own stick or any other players stick (excluding the goalkeeper) after the puck was kicked. See related link for entire rule.
