NHL Backups Only


I have two blogs, this one and Benchwarmers, a blog about my little niche in hockey history, goalies who have appeared in the NHL as backups but never dressed in the NHL. I've managed to uncover 145 goalies who have only appeared in the NHL as backups. If you want more information for any goalie, click their name and you will be directed to my other blog. I have written a blog post for each goalie with a bio, picture, stats and confirmed NHL games. 

From a hobby perspective these goalies are interesting because when they sit on the bench of an official NHL game, they are eligible for NHL rookie cards, even if they never actually play. 


Note: One time NHL backup Russ Gillow played in WHA, his autograph is in that collection.
