Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.

    The fact that he tracks the puck and then lifts his leg to actively make that save is the amazing part! That wasn’t accidental!

    I can’t stop watching that save. And laughing with delight over it every time. Save of the year?

    I know when I saw that save live, I was in shock. It really is one of the greatest saves ever, considering the time the save was made. To bad they couldn’t get the win, or it would of been even more talked about.
