This website is dedicated to the goaltenders who made it to the NHL but have been eluded by hockey statisticians and historians. Many of these goalies are one game emergency call ups but many were also members of their respective teams for weeks or even months. None, however, experienced any official playing time. They dressed with the team and sat on the bench ready to called upon at any second. Had they been given the nod for even a minute of play at any point during any game, they would have become an NHL veteran, forever in the player registry. I feel as though these goaltenders were NHL players to some capacity, were part of the team for at least one NHL game and thus deserve some kind of recognition.

160 NHL "backup only" goaltenders have been uncovered and documented here.

The author of this blog has a history degree and a passion for the game of hockey, goalies in particular.
