For many fans, the love affair with goaltenders started in the 1970s thanks to all those colorful masks.
Gone were the barefaced greats of the 1950s and 1960s, replaced by heavily padded, awkward looking robots with concealed identities. Most of these goalies would never reach the stratosphere where Jacques Plante, Terry Sawchuk or Gump Worsley resided, but they would have their own legion of devoted fans.
One of the biggest fans of the post-expansion goaltender ranks has to be Sebastien Tremblay. Savvy web surfers will of course recognize Tremblay's name for his incredible website www.goaltenders.info, the Internet's number one stop for all things goaltender related, especially from a historical perspective. His research is unmatched and his passion is obvious.
Now Tremblay has turned his passion to the printed world of books, releasing Goaltenders: The Expansion Years (1967-1979). Here's the full book review.
