Tough luck, but Pascal has a modeling career to focus on now.

I remember his girlfriend (not pictured) was smoking hot. And that's all I have to contribute to this thread.
He broke his thumb on the controller.

Sorry to see this, Pascal was a very promising prospect when he joined the Jackets and his career got off to a great start. As has been said, he was incredibly unlucky with injuries - how many players are out after being hit by a puck while on the bench? As for a possible recovery, if the injury is to his legs or hips, as reported, he's done - his greatest strength as a goalie was the quickness of his legs. Sad. Best of luck in the future, Pazzy, you will always be remembered fondly in Columbus.

A tough end to a career for a very likable guy. I'll miss him, one of those players who always seemed to make me smile.

I can't be the only one noticing a difference between the picture and the description.

Too bad, I remember getting a collector card of his when he played for the Mooseheads. I preferred him as a goalie because he had cooler looking pads. That was the way to do it as a child.

different situations Leclaire is a free agent who is making no money being injured. DiPietro is getting paid 4.5 million per year for the rest of his life to be injured.

Not every injury-prone goalie can get signed to 15 year contracts. Alas.

I liked Leclaire, though. Tough to see him go without getting a good injury-free shot in the league.

Best of luck Pazzy.
I remember that game. Tripple overtime of playoff madness. He was incredible and I remember thinking that even if we lost, Leclair would be the goalie that we needed to make a real push. I thought that after all those years of bad goaltending, we didnt have to worry anymore.
Shame, I liked the guy and he had so much talent.
