Goaltenders are not allowed to skate past their blue line (except during TV timeouts). It's my understanding that this is the reason why they are not allowed to wear a letter.
By the way, anyone remember when Roy skated the puck over the blue line and up to center? It was maybe 3-4 years ago and Colorado was getting beaten pretty badly. Roy was so upset that he took a penalty to get the point across to this teammates.
