Since being traded to the Minnesota Wild Devin Setoguchi has had some pretty memorable moments. Unfortunately, Thursday night's shootout blunder may be the most remembered and talked about moment Setoguchi has had since joining his new team.

We'll quickly paint the scene. After a tough 60 minutes, the Minnesota Wild and the Montreal Canadiens were level at four goals a piece. This included a huge third period for the Wild that featured three goals to help force extra hockey, the final goal coming from none other than Setoguchi. OT failed to declare a winner which sent the two teams to a shootout. After two of his teammates missed their attempts, the pressure was on Setoguchi to score the winner to force sudden death shootouts, otherwise the Canadiens would claim the "W".

Setoguchi's attempt ... well ... see for yourself below.

Wow. You don't see attempts like that too often. Setoguchi lost the puck, slammed on the breaks, and wound up on his stomach of all places. Initially, you might blame the ice being in poor shape after 65 minutes of hockey but it's important to remember that the Zamboni does come out before the shootout begins. Also, Setoguchi should be aware the ice is in rough shape and opt for a simpler move - maybe one that leaves him on his feet.

Setoguchi now places himself in a rare company of failed shootouts, led by Dennis Wideman's truly magical attempt from 2006.
