Scottie Upshall Scores In His First Game With [Insert NHL Team Here]

On Monday, Scottie Upshall was traded by the Phoenix Coyotes to the Columbus Blue Jackets along with Sami Lepisto for defenseman Rostislav Klesla

It was the third time in his career that he's been dealt around the trade deadline.

After missing the morning skate because of travel issues, Upshall played with his new team for the first time on Tuesday night against the Vancouver Canucks, and scored a goal. 

Not bad for a debut, huh? Well, turns out this isn't the first time Scottie has turned such a trick.

Proof after the jump. 

In 2007, Upshall scored in his first game with the Philadelphia Flyers in New York.


In 2009, he scored in his first game with the Phoenix Coyotes in Boston (goal is at 1:00 of the video, although it starts off with a big Upshall hit on his first shift).


And finally, last night, Scottie tied the game in Vancouver at 1-1 in the second period. 


That's right, Scottie Upshall has scored in his first game for a new team THREE times in his nine-year NHL career. How's that for trivia?
