Mario Proulx

1 NHL Game

January 2, 1985 New York Rangers vs Vancouver Canucks. 6-0 win.

   1979, Drummondville native Mario Proulx accepted a scholarship to attend Providence College.  He graduated in 1984 with a major in business management. On top of being a Dean's list student he left Providence with a number of school records, including most wins by a goalie and most shutouts by a goalie. He was passed over in the 1980 NHL draft but was selected by the Rangers in 1981 and later offered a contract. 

   Mario Proulx dressed as the New York Rangers' backup goalie for one game during the 1984/1985 season. When Glen Hanlon came down with a case of the flu the Rangers called up Mario Proulx to dress as backup goalie to John Vanbiesbrouck. Beezer had a stellar game, posting his first career NHL shutout. Hanlon was healthy enough to return for the team's next contest and thus Proulx was sent back down to the minors. 

  Proulx returned to Drummondville after retiring from hockey. For a couple seasons, up until 2004, Mario Proulx was a goalie coach in the QMJHL for the Drummondville Voltigeurs.
