Arvy gets the shorties

Shorthanded goals are one of the most exhilarating things to see in a hockey game. They usually shift the momentum dramatically in a game, and Viktor Arvidsson has gotten his share of them.

Arvidsson is tied with David Legwand for 2nd on the Predators all-time list with ten shorthanded goals.

His most recent shorthanded goal was posted last season on March 30th against the Blue Jackets as he tallied two that season. He hasn’t gotten one in 2019-20.

Assuming Arvidsson finishes out his contract that runs through 2023-2024, he’ll definitely hold this record eventually and pass Greg Johnson who has 11 shorthanded goals.

This current season has been a rocky one for Arvidsson due to an unfortunate and questionable injury he suffered from St.Louis’ Robert Bortuzzo.

He hasn’t looked the same since then, but hopefully he’ll bounce back next season and get back to his old self, which is flipping the ice with his speed and hustle to force incredible goals even when the team is at a player disadvantage.
