List of Goalies with Shutouts in their first start.
 
I was just curious is their a list out there? I haven't found one.

Just a couple off the top of my head.

Yann Dannis in 05/06 VS Thrashers
Michael Leighton in 02/03 VS Coyotes (tie)
Jussi Markannen in 01/02 VS Ducks
Nabokov in 00/01 VS Colorado (tie, Think he had played some mop up duty before that)

Mike Fountain in 1996 against the Devils.

The incredible thing about that game is that Fountain nearly scored a goal – with the Devils’ goalie pulled, he shot the puck down the ice and hit the post square on.

If he’d scored, it would have been a feat for the ages – the NHL could go on for 1000 years and no goalie will have a shutout and a goal in his debut again.

Daren Puppa may have the most impressive debut, a 37 save shutout against the the high-scoring Edmonton Oilers of the mid-80s:

Mario Gosselin also had a shutout in his debut against St. Louis: http://www.flyershistory.com/cgi-bin....cgi?H19830664

I believe there were four goalies who did it before them, as I remember seeing a list in Goal magazine after Puppa did it, but don't remember who they were.

Claude Pronovost
 
Claude Pronovost, as a standby, replaced Terry Sawchuk, Jan 14, 1956 and shutout the Canadiens at the Forum:

Kevin Hodson had a shut out the against the Blackhawks 3–0 in 1995-1996. He was supposed to be "the future" of the Red Wings goaltending.....

Wile E Coyotes 09-21-2011 08:07 PM

Mike Smith of the Phoenix Coyotes.

Robbie Moore
 
1978-79 Flyers

March 6 1979 - 5 - 0 against the Colorado Rockies

5 games, 3 wins 0 losses and a tie.

2 shutouts.

I remember watching him, he was barely as high as the crossbar. had that little run, flamed in the playoffs, then disappeared till 1 game with Washington in the early 80's

Scott Clemmenson, playing for the Devils, shutout the Penguins on January 20, 2004 in his first start.

Al Montoya, playing for the Coyotes, shutout the Avalanche on April 1, 2009 in his first start.

I dont know if he recorded his first shutout in his first game as a rookie with Boston, but Frankie "Mr.Zero" Brimsek did record 6 in his first 8 games in the league. The first American raised Superstar (Eveleth, Minnesota), apparently he was a pretty cool character. Laid back casually deep in the crease, arm resting on the crossbar as if the play was going on at the other end of the rink when in fact he was looking at an incoming breakaway or 2 on 1. Used a custom made extra heavy goalie stick to clear players away who were infringing on his territory.

Robbie Moore and Pete Peeters were the goaltenders here in Portland when the Flyer's had the old Maine Mariners (along with Rick St.Croix).

Moore was excellent at the AHL level, but when they listed at him at 5' 5" they were generous beyond words.

He and Darren Pang would have been a great combo.

I think they measured him in skates on his tip toes :D

he looked like a little kid out there....

Killion 09-22-2011 07:14 PM

Wow. A name I havent heard in eons. What Moore lacked in size he more than made up for in guts & skill. Totally un-afraid, he was a "rushing goaltender" if you know what I mean?. Way out there. Excellent skater. Knew his angles. Ultra aggressive. Played a good 5' out of the top of his crease and was actually a "threat" in terms of transition from defence to offence as he had fantastic vision & hockey sense. Had he been around 10, 20 or 40 yrs earlier when size didnt matter so much......

I fear my memories of Roger Crozier & Rogie Vachon are all I have left to cling to in terms of stellar performances by vertically challenged goaltenders, and sorry Rhiessan, I blame it all on Ken Dryden you sonofa....

Bobby Blowhard 09-23-2011 12:10 AM

Ray Emery? Or was it just a record setting win streak?

nutbar 09-28-2011 12:55 AM

Gary 'Cobra' Simmons did it playing for California versus Atlanta on Oct 11, 1974.

I remember that game.....

The funny part is the Hawks were absolutely awful back then...

I remember thinking "wow this guy can be great - maybe the next Belfour."

And in all irony he gave up the goal that ended the Hawks cup drought...

Sam St. Laurent for New Jersey, March 27 1986 vs St Louis. 1-0.

mco543 01-05-2013 04:51 PM

It's amazing how for most of these guys their debut shutout was the pinnacle and highlight of their NHL careers.

And at the other end of the spectrum was 44 year old Jacques Plante of the Boston Bruins. That's right Bruins. He shutout the Blackhawks in his debut at the Boston Gahden, I was there. Place went nuts.
He played 10 games with 2 shutouts in his short stay.

John Gibson joins the list of NHL goaltenders with shutouts in their league debut, stopping 18 shots last night in a 3-0 win at Vancouver.

(I note the slight distinction with the thread title - I keep track of debut shutouts, not necessarily shutouts in first starts - which is also interesting).

As noted above, here's the full list that I'm aware of:
http://www.hockeygoalies.org/faq/debut-shutout.html

Noting that there might be a few that I haven't uncovered yet.

If the list is complete, then Gibson is now the 21st NHL goaltender in the club.
