Not sure if there has been two goalies going down in the same game, but their are certainly instances of a skater (and even a coach!) slapping on the pads because no other goalies were available.

Nearly happened in a Canuck game 6 years ago.

Dan Cloutier hurt himself in a game-day skate, and the Canucks weren't able to recall their AHL goalies in time for a game vs. Pittsburgh. So they ended up having to dress a guy named Chris Levesque, who was the 3rd-string backup for the UBC Thunderbirds, as their backup goalie.

Mid-way through the game, Johan Hedberg, who started the game for Vancouver, was dazed in a collision with a Pittsburgh player when he charged after a loose puck, and it looked for awhile like Levesque would have to go into the game. But Hedberg turned out to be OK, and the Canucks won.

That's probably the closest scenario to something along those lines happening since the O6 era.

I could swear it happened to the Kings in the late 90s/early 00s, but I'm having no luck finding it online. Their 3rd goalie/AHL goalie (Legace?) was in attendance, but I don't know if he came in or not. Can any Kings fans help me out?

It's not two goalies getting injured, but an interesting story nonetheless.

I remember the Kings playoff game vs St Louis, Kings starter Fiset went down to groin pull, then Courtnall charged/destroyed backup goalie Storr, who played the rest of the game with a concussion. I believe Storr also had a physical injury (groin pull too) from the Courtnall collision as well. What was the biggest kick in the nuts about the play, was Courtnall received no penalty. Kings O'Donnell got a 5min major for pummeling Courtnall. Storr looked absolutely hopeless out there on the 5min major.

I suppose if one of the goalies can at least stand up, he'll be in net. No way a forward/dman is going in net.

Nashville had to dress Jamie Allison a few years back.

If both of the New York Islanders' goalies were injured in the same game, do you think they'd try to put a skater in goal, or would they go right up to the GM's box and get Garth Snow?

November 13 1968: Glenn Hall was injured during the game so the Blues put in their backup Robbie Irons. But they weren't confident he could do the job, so he was instructed to fake an injury on the ice. Then they paged their other goalie, Jacques Plante, out of the crowd to take over.

I think it happened to the Sharks in their record-setting second year. The starter went down, and then the back-up went down.

Now, there is a rule for this situation. If a team is carrying three goalies, and the starter is injured during a game, they can insert the No. 3 into the line-up on an emergency basis, in case the back-up is injured. Well, the back-up suffered an injury during that game.

So the No. 3, who started the game in the press box, wound up finishing the game.

The Oilers-Thrashers line brawl game, Byron Dafoe was injured early so after Nurminem was tossed for fighting, the Thrashers played the rest of the game with six skaters and no goalie. There were only about five minutes left and they were already losing 4-1. The Oilers just scored once into the empty net.

Well since they have two coaches who were goalies (Dunham and Gordon) they would both go in before Snow in that order.

Detroit about 10 years ago ended up using 3 goalies in one game Tim Chevaldea era

Oilers had to pull JOhn Garret out of the press box due to injures to Grant Fuhr and Bill Randford


Ranford started the game but got injured, Fuhr went in and also got injured--Ranford was in the dressing room at the time--Oilers called the NHL and asked if Ron Low(the an assistant) if he could go in and the NHL said no. Garret, who was doing the game for ITV got the tap in the shoulder--while he made his way to the dressing room--Ranford went back in net--Garret was on the oiler bench in warm up gear and he looked scared ****less.

Just last season Washington signed( to a try-out contract ) and dressed ( if I remember correctly ) a guy working in their public relations office because their starter was hurt and they couldn't get a back-up up in time. He took some practice, but that's it.

the look on his face is one of the greatest moments in Canucks history. Didn't Hedberg go on the IR like 3 hours after the game too? And Cloutier came back in for the next game. Hedberg would have had to lose his head for Levesque to go in. His stats in the CIS were like 875 save percentage with a 5.50 GAA or something painful like that.

Wasn`t Curtis Leschyshyn dressed as a back-up(or he possibly was until Emery could get there or something) during 03-04 with the Sens.

Why wasn't Plante already dressed as the backup?

I like the way that they always tell us that Lester Patrick was 44 years old, as if he were Methuselah or something. Johnny Bower was still playing while pushing 50, if I recall correctrly.

Quote:
As a player, Patrick had often gone into the net when his team's goalie was penalized. Once, he had cleared a shot and skated the length of the rink to score. But now, with nearly 30 pounds of equipment strapped to him, it was different.
The implication here is that Patrick (amd possibly others) scored goals while playing goalie, but that no one thought it a big deal because they were merely wearing goalie gloves and not the full armor. I wonder if it's true.

The Blues talked Plante out of retirement (and Hall out of retiring) by granting them sone perks: neither was expected to dress when the other was to play. They, had a rookie backup at all times, but as we can see, resisted using him.

In another game that season, the reverse took place, with Hall replacing Plante after interim service by a rookie goaltender.

Not quite what you are requesting but after Bruce Gamble suffered a heart attack mid-game and last played, the Flyers called up Smokey McLeod as a backup to Doug Favell. Two games later, Favell was ejected and McLeod, who had a knee injury suffered the night before, replaced him. Meanwhile, Gary Dornhoefer supposedly donned pads as a possible emergency replacement.

It happened a few years ago with Nashville, someone got injured in warmups, Brent Krahn was the new goalie, Jamie Allison dressed as the backup, and the Predators lost like 8-1 or something
