I'm assuming here you mean pulling a goalie at the end of a game for an extra attacker. If so, it was first done by Boston Bruins coach Art Ross in the second game of a playoff series against the Canadiens on March 26, 1931. Bruins didn't score with the extra attacker and Montreal didn't get an empty net goal. The game ended in a 1-0 score for Canadiens.
