I think we should be careful going too far back because it's becoming more and more clear that there was this goaltender/third (fourth?) defenseman hybrid deal going on...even with Lehman who is noted in newspaper reports to challenge plays out at the boards with some regularity.
There are goalies from the generation before that who would carry the puck down the ice and score or come close. Until goaltending evolved into what we know it as today (likely in the Vezina/Lehman etc. area), there's probably a number of mildly obscure answers to be had.
