Justin Fontaine has only played in five NHL games for the Minnesota Wild, but he set a franchise record with his first career goal Saturday night.

The 25-year-old rookie scored just 12 seconds into the Wild's game against the Dallas Stars. According to Minnesota's communications department, Fontaine's goal is the fastest to start a game in franchise history, beating out Dany Heatley's previous record by one second.

Fontaine, who spent the last two seasons in the AHL, was a prolific scorer in college at the University of Minnesota Duluth, where he was part of a national championship team.
