Longest career shutout streak (to start an NHL career)

I was thinking about this this morning for i dont know what reason, I tried to find the answer online but didnt really know where to look.

whats the longest shutout streak for a goalie, as in whats the longest it took for a goalie to get scored on for the first time in his career...

im sure there have been goalies that had a shutout on their first games, but how long were they able to keep the shutout going for?

Looks like it is Matt Hackett at 102:48, set in 2011 with the Wild.

If you're looking for the normal longest shutout streak, I'm pretty sure it's Brian Boucher

Wow - I had no idea that my site was mentioned there!

Anyhow, it's definitely Hackett, at 102:48:
http://hockeygoalies.org/bio/hackettm.html

Breaking the record set by Dave Gatherum (100:21) in October of 1953:
http://www.hockeygoalies.org/bio/gatherum.html

I'm not sure who held the record prior to Gatherum. It's interesting that Hackett still doesn't have an NHL shutout to his name (his shutout streak started in relief). He also didn't allow a goal in his next three appearances (all in relief).

Here's my current list of NHL/WHA goaltenders who began their big league careers with shutouts.

NHL:
Hal Winkler (November 16, 1926)
Tiny Thompson (November 15, 1928)
Alfie Moore (January 30, 1937)
Bob Perreault (December 17, 1955)
Marcel Paille (November 2, 1957)
Dave Gatherum (October 11, 1953)
Andre Gill (December 23, 1967)
Wayne Thomas (January 14, 1973)
Gary Simmons (October 11, 1974)
Mario Lessard (October 26, 1978)
Robbie Moore (March 6, 1979)
Mario Gosselin (February 26, 1984)
Daren Puppa (November 1, 1985)
Mike Fountain (November 14, 1986)
Jussi Markkanen (November 28, 2001)
Michael Leighton (January 8, 2003)
Yann Danis (October 12, 2005)
Mike Smith (October 21, 2006)
Al Montoya (April 1, 2009)

WHA:
Peter Donnelly (October 15, 1972)
Ron Grahame (December 29, 1973)
Bob Blanchet (December 14, 1974)

Note that I think that the list is incomplete (perhaps pnep has the details that I'm missing). Notable omissions include Evgeni Nabokov (it was his first start, but not NHL debut) and Matt Hackett (similar).

Hal Winkler was a western veteran before consolidation and had numerous western shutouts and had played in SC Final for a western representative:

He had a shutout in his first NHL appearance big not begin his big league career with a shutout.

This is just to start a career, Killion. Connell has the longest shutout streak in general though, yes. 8 shutouts in 9 games in that streak, I do believe as well. Gave up zip for six games, then let up 2, and then followed it up with back-to-back shutouts...ho-hum...

In my mind getting the shutout minutes in relief diminishes the accomplishment in respect to the thread subject title. Thats just me though. I'd give it to the guy who actually started and played a complete game(s).

Really? I'd say its harder depending on what happened. Hackett played 59 minutes and didn't allow a goal in his NHL debut. Harding gave up a goal and got hurt. Pretty sure Hackett deserves every part in this record.

Yea really. But I probably should have gotten more facts like how much he actually played in relief. 59 minutes is fine, basically a full game, but how many minutes did he play in the next 3 games in which he came in in a relief effort?

That's irrelevant to the discussion, isn't it, since the shutout streak was over at that point?

Hackett's first two NHL games were both (essentially) of full game length.

I understood it that his shutout streak started in relief and carried forward in the next three games he played which were also all in relief. Guess I misunderstood.

No worries - and that's right; his first game was 58:49 in length (he replaced Josh Harding 1:11 into the game), and he went 43:59 in his second game before Dustin Penner scored.
