Harry Zolnierczyk has spent most of his professional career with the American Hockey League affiliates of the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins. He's been a bottom liner who can chip in some goals from time to time.

This season, playing primarily with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, Zolnierczyk is contributing a little more offense than usual. Through 35 in the AHL, he's scored 14 goals and 25 points, good for third on the team. On Wednesday night, his latest goal was a beauty:

Here's the Citizens' Voice's Jonathan Bombulie on the goal:

On Zolnierczyk's goal, he skated up the right wing and split defensemen Joey Mormina and Artem Sergeev diagonally as he cut to the net, then flipped a puck to the top corner while being tackled.

"I thought I could chip it behind them both and jump to the middle there," Zolnierczyk said. "I think it was a little bit of luck at the end to beat him over the glove."

That was the Penguins' third goal of the night en route to a 4-0 shutout over the Syracuse Crunch.
