Video: Antoine Vermette’s long range own goal

Apr 9, 2013, 1:12 AM EST

With a power play in tow and a 1-0 deficit, the Phoenix Coyotes decided to improve their odds of tying things up by going 6-on-4 late in Monday’s game against the Vancouver Canucks. They assumed the risk of a Canucks player scoring an easy goal, but not like this:

Not too surprisingly, the final score ended up being 2-0 in favor of Vancouver.

Dan Hamhuis was credited with the empty-net, shorthanded goal (or ENSHG if you want to be weird), but Antoine Vermette is the one who sent the puck all the way down … and he’s also the guy who will probably want to avoid blooper reels for a while.

At least he’s not alone, though. Enjoy some other bad-luck gaffes in the links below.
