2018 first-round pick Alex Alexeyev scored his first AHL goal in the Hershey Bears’ home opener.
The Russian defenseman missed nearly all of the preseason due to a concussion, but, in his debut for the Bears, Alexeyev made amends quickly.
“What a amazing feeling to play my first pro game and score first pro goal 🐻🍫,” Alexeyev said after the game on Twitter.

Alexeyev was found wide open on the right circle by Garrett Pilon before unleashing a wrist shot that beat Baby Penguins goaltender Casey DeSmith blocker side.
Here are all the firsts Alexeyev accomplished with this feat.
The Bears would go on to lose to 4-3 in front of 7,520 at Giant Center. Alexeyev had 3 shots on the night.
