Chris Levesque, a back-up goalie for UBC, was called up in an emergency capacity in 2003. Dan Cloutier was injured in the morning practice and the Canucks would have re-called a goalie from the farm, but the Manitoba Moose were on the east coast. Levesque almost got the chance to play when Johan Hedberg made a ill-advised rush to play a puck 20 feet in front of his net and was injured in a collision; he stayed in the game after a couple minutes of on-ice treatment, though.

Levesque didn't looked thrilled at the prospect of having to replace Hedberg.
