Speaking of debuts, 36 year old Scott Foster, signed as an emergency goalie today, hasn’t played meaningful hockey since college in 2003, has played about half the 3rd period

About 14 minutes was left on the clock in the third.

Also, I don't think this has happened in modern NHL history (at least not that I could find).

Emergency goalie has definitely played before but I can’t remember more than 2-3 minutes

I was wrong about it being the first time in recent history, but it's only been one other time that I can fine where the emergency goalie actually made it into the game.

While I found a bunch of stories about emergency goalies getting dressed and being on the bench, I finally found one. It was actually last year and was apparently the first time it had happened (Hurricanes equipment manager Jorge Alves). But he only played the last seven seconds of the game and didn't face a shot. The one big difference is that Alves had prior professional experience, playing in the WHLEHCL, and was signed to a PTO (Pro Try Out) contract prior to the game. Foster doesn't have pro experience, so he was only sign to an ATO (amatuer). Alves was put in the game by choice, I think the only way Foster could get into the game was if Delia got injured and he had to go in (as in Q couldn't pull Delia for Foster), but I don't really know if that's the case.


This is all only referring to recent history, I wouldn't be surprised if it happened a few times back during the Original 6 era and before (yep, back before 65 teams were only required to carry 1 goalie, so a house goalie was at every game. Seems the last time this happened before Alves was in 1963: http://www.thehockeynews.com/news/artic ... oon-change)

Only happened once before and the guy played for 7 seconds of game time. I can't get enough of this story.

Emergency goalies are always amazing stories.

I assume he's been playing high-level beer league since college.

I'm always surprised they don't just make some healthy scratch plug who is already on the roster put on emergency gear.

High-level rec league isn't exactly the NHL or even the minor pros, but it's not nothing. It's usually full of guys who either played in college or low-level pros.

Irrelevant story nobody cares about: There's a pick-up game near my house on Fridays that I used to go to, but it suddenly became popular with the high-level guys. They were all nice about it, but after a few weeks I was the last bad player still showing up. My fat nerd self who took some learn to play classes and has two goals in the adult beginner league is lined up against a guy who was a top-100 pick for the Oilers. It was hilarious.

I was at last nights game. What an interesting night for a lost season. They mentioned that a new rule has been put in place that an emergency goalie is always in the building in case needed. This was a new rule put in place this year by the NHL so you would not have to have the goalie coach or equipment manager have to play if needed. Foster also could have played for the Jets if they lost both their goalies. Foster also got the #1 star of the game.

Perhaps he should update his Linkedin page? As backup goalie?

Artemi Panarin set the Blue Jackets franchise record for points and assists tonight, so thanks for that trade

Thanks to Edmonton beating Vancouver in a shootout, Blackhawks finish in the 7th draft position, pending the draft lottery. They have a 6.5% chance of getting No. 1 overall and a 20.4% chance of top 3.

If only the NHL were smart enough to fix the lottery the way the NBA does.

Blackhawks will pick 8th overall, I believe dropping one spot in the lottery, so someone moved up a ton.

I realize that a lot of people are saying defense but if there's a natural center there in that spot than that's the better route.

I don't think the Hawks are in a position to do anything but BPA.

Is it true that the Hawks will actually have some cap space to work this offseason?

From what I've seen, they should have @$4 mil after figuring in raises for the guys they already have. That assumes they LTIR Hossa again but that is a pretty safe bet since they haven't invented a cure for what he has.

I haven't watched much hockey this past winter knowing the Hawks were more or less out of it with Crawford's injury, so how do you all feel about Forsberg as a back up going forward? I assume Crawford will be back. And how are the younger D-men?

Forsberg will probably be fine as a back up. Among the younger D Men, Jokiharu is the one to look for. He looked very good at World Juniors and provides the sort of 2 way play the Hawks want out of their defensemen. He'd immediately be the best Power play QB the Hawks have- that says just as much about current Hawks options as it does Jokiharu. But he's still really young and it would be super optimistic to think he's going to be the savior this season. This is the year for Forsling to take the next step and become a solid 2nd pairing puck moving defenseman. We'll see if that happens but D men are like catchers, they take longer to develop.

Here's an update on cap space for next year. Should be around 6 million left for 2-3 guys.
