Well thats interesting. So basically, if the goalie gets ejected (or hurt?) then a player has to fill-in; but then if he gets hurt (or ejected?) then & only then could the team haul the spare out of the stands? Was that because rosters were smaller back then and you had to have a minimum number of skaters?
