Kyle Shapiro

 1 NHL Game

January 13, 2022 New Jersey Devils vs New York Islanders. 2-3 loss.

   Mid-January, 2022 the Devils lost goalies Mackenzie Blackwood and Akira Schmid to COVID protocol. Local netminder Kyle Shapiro was asked to practice with the Devils. Later in the day when it became clear neither Blackwood or Schmid would be ready for an upcoming game against the Islanders, they signed Shapiro to an amateur tryout contract and he suited up as backup to Jon Gillies. 
  Shapiro lead the Devils onto the ice. “It was a first class move by the Devils that they did that for me," said Shapiro. It is my first – and probably only – time on NHL game ice, so it was really cool they were willing to do that. The only thing going through my head was don’t fall and if I shoot a puck make sure it goes on net. It was a really cool 30 seconds, noticing my parents and friends in the crowd as well.” (1)
