Olympics

The USA has a long and strong history of excellent goaltending at the Winter Olympics. Jack McCartan and Jim Craig have been mentioned but the following should be added.

1924 Frenchy Lacroix, succeeded Georges Vezina, although briefly with the Montreal Canadiens.

1956 Willard Ikola, silver medal team, named best goalie.

1972 Mike Curran, silver medalist team, outstanding performance.
