When does a goalie allow a shocking 13 goals, watch his team lose 13-4 and still walk out as the game's first star? When he's not even supposed to be the goalie, of course.

As reported by a variety of sources, Yahoo! Canada's Buzzing the Net blog chief among them, Erie Otters forward Connor Crisp, who has sat out the entire Ontario Hockey League season with a shoulder injury, was forced to play goalie for nearly an entire OHL game. His time in the crease was brought on by an early injury to the Otters' lone healthy goaltender, Ramis Sadikov, just two minutes into the team's game against the Niagara IceDogs in St. Catharines, Ontario.

Crisp wasn't a complete goalie novice -- the 17-year-old has played as a goalie in roller hockey -- but he hadn't skated on the ice as a goalie since he was 5. Compounding things was the fact that the Otters didn't have any goalie skates that would fit the forward, so he had to either squeeze his feet into Sadikov's custom narrow skates or risk wearing regular skates.

If he failed to do either of those things, the Otters would have to forfeit.
