Turns out that beyond all the carnival pugilism on the KHL's Vityaz Chekhov are players like Evgeny Timkin, the 21-year-old forward who pulled off this goal of the year contender in a 2-1 victory over CSKA Moscow on Thursday.

At the very least, it could be a shorthanded goal of the year candidate. Timkin also played for the ECHL's Mississippi RiverKings and Florida Everblades in recent years.

That's CSKA defenseman Igor Ozhiganov being victimized on the spin-o-rama — not exactly the most experienced fella on the power play — and goalie Rastislav Stana being beaten with the between the legs shot.

By the way, remember when Vityaz was a goon squad? Not a fight in this game, or in their previous game. Clearly, Timkin scored to help them maintain their YouTube quotas.
