Wild sign 51 year old goalie Paul Deutsch

I was shocked when I read this so I'm pretty surprised there's no article about it already. It's just a try out contract though so don't worry Wild fans, ha ha. Cool story though.

Hope you don't mind me chiming in. This reminds me of a few years ago, the Canucks had to do the same with with the goalie for a university here. He actually had to sit as the backup, though. The best part was, our starting goalie that night went down and looked hurt. Thankfully, he was able to continue, but I've never seen someone go pale that fast before

lmao that hilarious. I would have loved to see a 51 year old goalie step in to finish off a blowout win for the Sharks and make the save of the year, ha ha.

It was a PTO, which means he made nothing.

I think he didn't get a single penny, but it must have been a experience of a lifetime for him.

ya it was back in 2003 Vancouver vs Pittsburgh http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Levesque
and another similar incident Alexander Pechurskiy when penguins needed a backup goalie vs Vancouver and he even got to play http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Pechurskiy

I remember that. Wasn't Alex Auld in net and basically faked an injury just for reaction?

What's funny is Dany Heatley thought Deutsch was 60 in a Russo tweet.

Phoenix also had Tom Fenton as LaBarbera's backup a year ago against Rangers;

No. Emergency backups like this are signed to what's called an ATO (as opposed to a PTO you see for certain pros like Owen Nolan had with Vancouver this preseason). The ATO (Amateur Try Out) is a 1 day, unpaid contract with some major stipulations. Possibly the biggest of those is the fact that the player cannot have "professional" experience. That's why it's always a guy like this, or a 3 years out of college, never signed guy.

Yep. It's also for the fact that an ATO means the player doesn't have to go through waivers (which take 24 hours and are usually pointless in an emergency situation), which is something any past professional has to do.

Either way, it was a good story. I sort of hope fans start to chant "we want Deutsch" at games now.
