Chicago Blackhawks goaltending prospect Jaxson Stauber made history on Friday night after becoming the first player in AHL history to score a goal and record a shutout in the same game.

With the Rockford IceHogs up 3-0 late in the third period, Stauber took advantage of the Chicago Wolves pulling their goaltender for the extra attacker by stopping a dump-in attempt behind his own net before quickly sending a lofter of a shot towards the visiting net. The puck crossed the goal line with 59 seconds left, and the home crowd at BMO Center went nuts, as expected.

Stauber isn't the first one in his family to score a goalie goal. His father, Robb Stauber, scored one on Oct. 9, 1995 in Rochester.

Jaxson Stauber, 24, became the 23rd goaltender in AHL history to score a goalie goal. Alex Nedeljkovic is the only player in league history with two of them.
