Givani Smith is an NHL goal scorer.

The former Kitchener Rangers forward potted his first career NHL goal Tuesday night for the Detroit Red Wings.

It may have come as part of an 8-2 loss to the New York Islanders, but they all count on the stat sheet nonetheless.

He scored with about six minutes left in regulation, tipping home a point shot from Christoffer Ehn.

Smith was part of the Rangers' run to Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals in 2017-18, after he was acquired ahead of the trade deadline that year from the Guelph Storm.

The Toronto native was a first round pick of the Barrie Colts in 2014, but spent most of his OHL career with the Storm.

He was playing in the 11th game of his NHL career.
