Playing career[edit]

Goc was drafted 157th overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft where he played 13 games without scoring a point and collecting four penalty minutes. On November 9, 2001, he was traded by the Devils, along with Josef Boumedienne and Anton Butt to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Andrei Zyuzin. He played in nine games with the Lightning without scoring a point. While in North America he also played in the American Hockey League for the Albany River Rats and the Springfield Falcons.

In 2002 he went back to Germany to play for Adler Mannheim and before moving to Hannover, where he scored 17 goals and 13 assists for 30 points in 50 games in 2005–06.

On February 1, 2011, in his sixth season with the Scorpions, Goc signed a further two-year contract extension to remain in Hannover.[1]

After the Scorpions ceased operations in the DEL, Goc returned to his original club, the Schwenningen Wild Wings, who coincidentally bought Hannover's license to return to the DEL on July 18, 2013.[2]

Goc is a valued penalty killer. He was a member on the Germany hockey team in the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan and in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, leading Germany to the quarterfinals before losing to the United States 5–0.
