I want to say around 89 or so. I still remember seeing the x-ray of his testicles on the damned news at the dinner table - he was the Flyers marquee player at the time and his injury was a big deal.
He wasn't the same goalie after the injuries. He went from athletic to floppy. The whole butterfly revolution was taking place at that time and he became a hybrid goalie well into his NHL career, which is kind of remarkable when you think about it.
He's still my all-time favorite player, and yes, I was a goalie as a kid at street hockey purely because of Hexy.
