Goldstein played his junior basketball at Balwyn Blazers and Nunawading Spectres. He moved to football in 2006, playing for the Oakleigh Chargers and nominated for the AFL draft in that same year.

He made his AFL debut in this game, where he collected four disposals and won 13 hitouts. In the next round, Goldstein kicked two goals against the Collingwood Magpies.

He finished with 5 goals, 25 hitouts and helped his team mates to a 10 goal win.[1] He was awarded two Brownlow Medal votes for this game, the first and only votes he has received in his career.[2]

In 2010 he played in 21 of 22 games, and often had to ruck for long periods, due to injuries to the Kangaroos other ruckmen, Hamish McIntosh, David Hale and Drew Petrie.[3]
