History of Professional Goaltending Quiz #4

History of Professional Goaltending Quiz #4

This is the fourth of four quizzes in a series. If you haven’t tried quiz #1 or quiz #2 , or quiz #3 you should give them a go as well!

Vancouver Goalie Cory Schneider with water bottle

Late last season Vancouver's Roberto Luongo asked the coaches to see that Corey Schnieder got into enough games to see his name on the Jennings Trophy with Luongo. The number of appearances required to qualify is the answer to just one of the 25 questions in this quiz.

This quiz will be a real challenge to anyone who has only been following the game in recent years – but it will be a great chance to begin to learn a bit about the history of the game. When you’re done how about leaving a note in the comments and tell us how you did?

  1. Joe from Chicago

    66%, although I’ll put the blame on my age and not my knowledge.

  2. Bob Woodhouse

    Question 4, 1935 Time Magazine? Terry would have been 6 years old to be on the cover.

  3. Aaron

    79%, for my best score yet! But I owe that to a quick ten-minute studying session on pre-1930 NHL goaltenders I did on Wikipedia prior to having even seen any of the questions. Sure enough, three questions happened to pertain to what I read. Pure luck if you ask me!

    These were a lot of fun! Keep ’em coming!

    Dear Mr. Woodhouse, I apologize for the error in Question #6. It was 1966 for the Sawchuk cover. Life Magazine had Sawchuk’s face with all of his facial scars accentuated for people to see the damage he had incured without facial protection. Atleast you knew it was Sawchuk for the correct answer!
