A 36-year-old accountant came into the game as the emergency goalie for the Chicago Blackhawks in the third period of their game this week (March 29th) against the Winnipeg Jets. Scott Foster last played in a competitive game at Western Michigan University in 2006, and had just been picked up as the team's emergency goaltender earlier the day before. Regular Blackhawks goalie Anton Forsberg -- who is himself a replacement for Corey Crawford, who's dealing with a concussion -- was injured in practice yesterday morning, so backup Collin Delia started the game. Then Delia was injured in the third period with the Blackhawks up 6-2, so the call went out to Foster. The accountant-turned goalie did his job, not allowing any goals as he blocked all seven shots he saw.
