He is getting paid, but I don't think he signed a one day contract. Unlike other emergency goalies, Tallas isn't eligible for an amateur tryout contract.

Still not correct, since it is a shortened season you have to use the prorated minimum salary so it is a little over 3K.

With a few hours notice? No. It was only for a period and a half anyway.

would like to see the day when a team hires a 600lb Samoan in a situation like this.

Cool. But he was actually in the show back in the day. I like the ones where they haul a guy in that has never played in the NHL.

It still would be cool to get a real jersey with your name on it and everything.

Yep. I remember the Coyotes signed someone from Manhattanville College, which I never heard of, when they played the Rangers.

Was this a competition? I thought it was a cool story...

Happened with Olivier Michaud. Played in the third period and didn't allow a single goal.

Couldn't Markstrom just have borrowed Tallas's pads and sat on the bench with them for one game?

Wow, dude was in NHL 2002. I thought he was much older than 39 today.

One of the worst goalies that has ever played for Boston, and that's saying A LOT.

Considering there's 6 inches of height difference between them, I doubt Tallas' pads would fit Markstrom all too well.

Is that even allowed by the league? You'd think a 600lb Samoan would fail his physical....

Maybe I am nuts, but that's what I remember.
It's called an Amateur Try Out (ATO) contract. It's a one-day contract, no salary, bonuses or other forms of compensation. Can't use the ATO contract on professional or former professional players.

It's most commonly used for emergency one-game backup goalies or so teams can bring a young player in for a game near the end of the season before their ELC starts. e.g. Justin Abdelkader had a ATO with Detroit in 2007-2008 before they finalized his ELC contract.


One interesting one was when the Wild signed Paul Deutsch, age 51, last season. He participated in warm ups and would have been on the bench if their minor league goalie callup hadn't arrived shortly before game time.

Caps now have Olie Kolzig for these situations. It'd be fun.

Clear sign of a trade on the horizon, they'll have 3 goalies in the NHL for the next 12 hours or so. Gotta clear the log jam!

Robbie had a couple good seasons as a backup but he had a bad season in what was a disastrous year for the team and was out to make room for John Grahame. Always liked the way he played.

The Bruins had other guys who had no business even getting a cup of coffee in the NHL.

This is my thought... I know goalies are crazy, but this is the NHL... is it THAT difficult to find a set of goalie gear to fit somebody???

Presumably, Markstrom with somebody else's pads would still be better than Rob Tallas.

But, I guess if all the gear is missing, that's a bit tougher.
