Kyle Konin

 1 NHL Game

December 2, 2021 St. Louis Blues vs Tampa Bay Lightning. 2-4 loss.

   Kyle Konin spent the 2021/22 NHL season as Tampa Bay's local emergency backup goalie. His dream came true when the St. Louis Blues were in town to play the Lightning and lost goalie Jordan Binnington to COVID-19 protocols. Cap issues forced the Blues to call to local goalie Kyle Konin instead of recalling someone from the AHL. Konin dressed as backup to Ville Husso. 
  Not only did Konin lead the Blues onto the ice for the start of the game, he was left alone to take a rookie lap by himself, an NHL tradition. "“I was kind of against it for a while,” Konin said. “I was just like, I don’t know if it’s more of, like, a thing you have to earn or whatever. I just was kind of like, I don’t know if I should. But all the boys were like, ‘Oh, no, you’re going, you’re going.’ So at that point it was kind of like they decided that for me. It was a good time, and it’s pretty cool to kind of get the full NHL experience.” (1)
