   On January 13, 1985 the New York Islanders were playing the Chicago Blackhawks. The game featured an incident in which Islanders goalie Billy Smith swung his stick at Chicago player Curt Fraser. Fraser sustained a fractured cheekbone and damaged eye socket. On January 25th a hearing a was held and it was decided that Billy Smith would receive a six game suspension for his part in the incident. For the six games in which Smith was suspended the Islanders recalled Todd Lumbard to dress as Kelly Hrudey's backup. I asked Lumbard about the experience. "My favourite memories are being there and achieving a life long dream. Having a chance to be around all those great Islander  players was pretty awesome."

   Lumbard had been drafted by the Islanders in 1981. He was a WHL All-Star with the Regina Pats during his last season of junior hockey. Lumbard returned to Brandon, Manitoba after his hockey career had finished. He became a successful business man in the funeral home business and recently became a part owner of the junior team he used to play for, the WHL's Regina Pats. He currently serves as team President.
