Pierre-Edouard Bellemare had been waiting a long time for this.

Originally from France and after years of playing professionally in Sweden, Bellemare scored his first National Hockey League goal on Wednesday - at the age of 29. It came off a deflection from a quick rush up the ice, giving the Philadelphia Flyers a 2-1 lead in the back half of the first period against the rival Pittsburgh Penguins.

Stick on the ice, kids.
