CHICAGO (AP) – Emergency Goalkeeper Scott Foster played the last 14 minutes after Chicago lost to Anton Forsberg and Collin Delia as a result of a Blackhawks 6-2 victory the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.
It was Foster's first competitive action for 20 minutes in relief with Western Michigan University in the 2005-06 season.
Forsberg was expected to start, but he was scratched after the team said he got injured while warming up. Delia, who was recalled by the minors on Wednesday, then stopped 25 of 27 shots on his NHL debut before being helped off the ice in the third period due to a lower body injury.
Foster, a 36-year-old former college goalie. After a brief warm-up, the game resumed and Foster was greeted with cheers from the crowd of 21,839 that Tyler Myers refused for his first save after a minute of getting in.
Supported by "Foster! Foster!" And louder on the track, he finished with seven stops against the playoff-tied jets, winners of six in a row.
