Here's my current list of NHL/WHA goaltenders who began their big league careers with shutouts.

NHL:
Hal Winkler (November 16, 1926)
Tiny Thompson (November 15, 1928)
Alfie Moore (January 30, 1937)
Bob Perreault (December 17, 1955)
Marcel Paille (November 2, 1957)
Dave Gatherum (October 11, 1953)
Andre Gill (December 23, 1967)
Wayne Thomas (January 14, 1973)
Gary Simmons (October 11, 1974)
Mario Lessard (October 26, 1978)
Robbie Moore (March 6, 1979)
Mario Gosselin (February 26, 1984)
Daren Puppa (November 1, 1985)
Mike Fountain (November 14, 1986)
Jussi Markkanen (November 28, 2001)
Michael Leighton (January 8, 2003)
Yann Danis (October 12, 2005)
Mike Smith (October 21, 2006)
Al Montoya (April 1, 2009)

WHA:
Peter Donnelly (October 15, 1972)
Ron Grahame (December 29, 1973)
Bob Blanchet (December 14, 1974)

Note that I think that the list is incomplete (perhaps pnep has the details that I'm missing). Notable omissions include Evgeni Nabokov (it was his first start, but not NHL debut) and Matt Hackett (similar).
