I have never seen a goalie quite like this before:
One of Glenn Hall's biggest fans was his coach in St. Louis - Scotty Bowman. Bowman even named his son after the goaltender.
"Well we (the Montreal Canadiens) won the Cup in late May  and my son was born on the 28th of June, a month that was an exciting time for our family. First Stanley Cup as a coach ... we kidded around, and we named him Stanley Glenn, actually after Glenn Hall, our goalie in St. Louis, when I was there for the first four years of the Blues. I owe an awful lot of my coaching career to Glenn Hall, he was a fantastic goalie and a fantastic person, in fact he won the Conn Smythe Trophy as people can recall in the '68 playoffs. We never won a game in the Finals but he made it a series for us, he was just a wonderful goalie."
