Mathieu trivia

This little nugget came from Jen, a sports historian and phenomenal resource for hockey trivia, via Twitter this morning:
On this date (February 16) in 2001, #LAKings Mathieu Schneider became the first defenceman in #NHL to score against all 30 teams.
How cool is that?

If you are wondering, the last of the 30 teams was the Minnesota Wild. And the point was a power play goal (assisted by Ziggy Palffy and Luc Robitaille). The three players later connected again, with Mathieu  adding an assist (with Ziggy Palffy) on a Luc Robitaille power play goal.

Note: I'm guessing that means all 30 teams that were in the league at that that time. The teams have changed since then. I wonder if he ever scored against the Winnipeg Jets 1.0?
