Best Answer

Ron Hextall of the Flyers in 1987 was the first goaltender to shoot the puck into the net for a goal. However, the first goal awarded to a goaltender was given to Bill Smith of the Islanders in 1979. He was the last player to touch the puck for the Islanders before the other team (Colorado Rockies) shot the puck into their own net. Hextall was also the first goalie to score a goal in a playoff game, that being in 1989 against the Washington Capitals.
