On Feb. 19, David Makowski, a freshman on the Denver Pioneers hockey team, scored a goal that you don't see very often:

With senior defenseman John Ryder in the box for a delay of game, the Pioneers had a faceoff in their end of the ice. Makowski received the puck and took a wrist shot from behind his goal line. There was a bit of traffic in front of him, but the puck went sailing down the ice about 180 feet, finally slipping past Michigan Tech goalie Kevin Genoe.

Tech captain Deron Cousens skated down the ice to give an encouraging word or two to Genoe. It was a lucky goal, so Genoe shouldn't feel too bad about it.

On the season, Makowski has five goals and 18 assists with a plus-11. The Pioneers took that game, 5-1, after a loss in the first contest between the teams on Friday. Will they drop from the No. 4 ranking this week?
