I'm pretty sure you're thinking of Malcolm.

I am entirely and wholly against ever drafting a goalie before the fifth round, but that's just me. Guys like Jaroslav Halak, Brian Elliot, Khudobin and Rinne are all late round fliers like Brandon Whitney. Couple that with the market damn near always being full of starters or potential starters and it feels like a wasted shot in the dark that the NHL draft is.
