The man who inherited the goal crease for Les Canadiens from Gump Worsley was Rogie Vachon.
Vachon looked like he was en route for hockey immortality - tending the nets for the legendary Canadiens, succeeding Gump Worsley and winning Stanley Cups.

They called up a promising young goalie to give him some apprentice time with established Vachon. The name of this prospect was Ken Dryden.
