Accountant By Day Chicago Goalie By Night. 14 Minute Thrill Of A Lifetime

Scott Foster was the goalie for The Chicago Blackhawks for 14 minutes.

In a game of a lifetime the 36 year old accountant who is a back up, back up goalie finally got the call.

In last Thursday’s game against Winnipeg, 2 Chicago goalies went down.

Normally Scott attends the game and watches from the press box and has dinner.  On Thursday, he got called in.

 

The 36-year-old accountant and beer-league hockey player filled in as an emergency goalie in his NHL debut, helping the Chicago Blackhawks to a 6-2 victory over the visiting Winnipeg Jets Thursday night.

After two goaltenders on the Blackhawks roster went down, Foster, a Sarnia, Ont. native who played in the Western Ontario Hockey League in his younger days, was called into action in the third period, according to reports. He stopped all seven shots fired at him in 14 minutes. In the waning moments, the United Center crowd chanted his name.

Now there’s a story for Monday day work!  His 14 minutes of fame he will never forget.
