He's a pro. The British League is a low league, but full of NHL draft picks. The Hurricanes' Anthony Stewart is on the same team right now and not putting up incredible numbers. The goalie in question is Craig Kowalski, an 8th rounder from the 2000 draft. He has about half a season's worth of AHL games under his belt, and several seasons in the ECHL.

It wasn't specified in the linked article, but other articles indicated he had to be with his wife later that night. I assume there was a planned medical situation of some sort.
