Substitute goalies

I don’t follow NHL but this story taught me something I think is interesting about the rules of NHL: If a team run out of goalies, the hosts have an emergency substitute goalie ready that can join either side. This happens every once in a while.

Most teams have two goalies. When a goalie is injured the emergency substitute is called in to get dressed and be ready if the second goalie is injured as well. This rarely happens, but it happens.

(Youtube @ 2m 28s)

I like how they have a shirt ready for him for either team.

They even won and celebrated his 8 saves afterwards.
