Guy is planning on getting a haircut and then watching the Rangers game at home, instead he gets a call from Phoenix, who asks him to sign an emergency contract to be their backup goalie for a game.

Can you imagine? He was a DIII college goalie and like 5 years later he's in an NHL game. Never actually played, but still a cool story!

Sweetness! How many of us would PAY to sit on the end of an NHL bench for a game?

I was thinking the same thing. Going out to warm up with all those guys, just to sit there and pass the puck back and forth with them. It would be pretty surreal :lol:
