January 6, 1976 New York Rangers vs St. Louis Blues. 2-5 loss.
Shortly into the 1975/76 NHL season the New York Rangers traded their long time goalie and future HHOFer Ed Giacomin. John Davidson and Dunc Wilson were entrusted with the duty to guard the Rangers' goal. Early January, 1976 John Davidson was forced out with a fractured right leg and Dunc Wilson was simultaneously recovering from having his appendix removed. New York recalled their top goaltending prospect in rookie Doug Soetaert to dress as their net minder. Mike Ralph was recalled from the IHL to dress as backup to Soetaert.
Mike Ralph retired from pro hockey in 1977. He later returned to the game in the 2000's as a goalie coach with the OHL's Barrie Colts and Toronto St. Michael's Majors.
