  1. Hannu Toivonen, the 25 year old goaltender born in Kalvola, Finland, was drafted 29th overall by the Boston Bruins in the 2002 NHL entry draft. Toivonen was drafted out of HPK Hameenlinna
  2. Charlie Hodge was born in Lachine, Quebec. Hodge was devoted to becoming a member of the Montreal Canadiens. Charlie Hodge began his hockey career with the Montreal Jr. Canadiens in 1950. In 1952, Hodge began showing his true skills finishing with a 2.22 GAA. The next year, he led the Quebec Junior Hockey League with 35 wins and 5 shutouts. Hodge then moved on to the Cincinnati Mohawks in the International Hockey League. There, he led the league in wins and shutouts and helped the Cincinnati Mohawks win the Turner Cup. In 1955, he finally played his first game with the Montreal Canadiens [edit]NHL career Hodge's first NHL game occurred in 1954 with Montreal. But because teams in that era only carried one goalie, and Montreal had perhaps the best goalie of the era in Jacques Plante, Hodge was only used in emergency situations. During this time, he played mostly in the AHL. When Plante was traded in 1962, Hodge got his chance to play full-time. He twice won the Vezina Trophy for being the goaltender of the team allowing the fewest number of goals during the regular season, once outright in 1963–1964 and shared with Gump Worsley in 1965–1966. Hodge's name appears on the league championship Stanley Cup six times, although he only actually played in one of those finals. He also played 1 game in the finals in 1955, but lost to Detroit. In 1967, young goaltender Rogatien Vachon was called up by the Canadiens. Vachon played superbly, and there was no more room for Hodge. Hodge was left unprotected in 1967 and he was picked up by the Oakland Seals in the 1967 NHL Expansion Draft. [edit]Expansion In 1967, the league doubled in size to 12 teams. Hodge was picked up in the 1967 NHL Expansion Draft by Oakland. In Oakland, Hodge garnered up three shutouts and 13 wins. Next season, he saw his playing time greatly reduced and was sent down to the Western Hockey League where he played for the Vancouver Canucks. Hodge was an expansion pick again when the Vancouver Canucks entered the NHL in 1970. He posted a winning record while sharing netminding duties with George Gardner and Dunc Wilson. He retired after being unable to come to terms with General Manager Bud Poile. [edit]Scouting Hodge sold real estate for a decade until Winnipeg Jets GM John Ferguson recruited him for the team's scout in Western Canada. Hodge is currently an amateur scout for the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning after two decades with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He received Stanley Cup rings with Pittsburgh in 1991 and 1992. He primarily scouts the Vancouver Giants and Chilliwack Bruins of the Western Hockey League and the Lower Mainland clubs in the British Columbia Hockey League.

  4. Jean-François Racine (born April 27, 1982 in Roxton Falls, Quebec, Canada) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender. Playing career Racine played junior hockey for the Drummondville Voltigeurs from 1999 until 2002. After his first season of junior, Racine was selected 90th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL) in the third round of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. He turned professional with the Memphis RiverKings of the Central League in the 2002–03 season. In 2003–04, he moved up to the St. John's Maple Leafs of the American Hockey League, the top Maple Leafs affiliate. Racine stayed with the team when the St. John's team moved to Toronto to become the Marlies.[1] While he has had many chances to play for the Leafs in the NHL, arguably outperforming Maple Leaf back-up Mikael Tellqvist during the 2005 training camp,[citation needed] he has still been relegated to the Marlies. Originally sharing the starting role with the Marlies with Tellqvist, the departure of Trevor Kidd as the prime back-up spot on the Leafs earned Tellqvist a promotion, with Racine earning the starting spot. The signing of Jean-Sébastien Aubin to the club, however, led to the two splitting the games 50/50. With the groin injury of Ed Belfour on December 12, 2005, Aubin was recalled to back up Tellqvist. Racine continued with the Marlies until 2007 when he joined Sherbrooke St. Francois of the LNAH.[1] WIKIPEDIA.COM
  5. Ronald Albert Low (born June 21, 1950) is a former Canadian ice hockey goaltender and coach. He grew up in Foxwarren, Manitoba. Playing career Low played for two years with the Dauphin Kings of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) before turning pro, leading the Kings to the Manitoba championship and the Memorial Cup playoffs each year. Originally selected in the 1970 NHL Amateur Draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs, Low only played one season with Toronto before he was left exposed in the 1974 NHL Expansion Draft where he was claimed by the Washington Capitals, where he would spend three seasons and would forever be in the Capitals' record books as the first goalie to get a shutout for the team on February 16, 1975 against the Kansas City Scouts. After being traded to and spending two seasons in the Detroit Red Wings organization, he was claimed by the Quebec Nordiques in the 1979 NHL Expansion Draft. Low was traded to the Edmonton Oilers after playing only 15 games with the Nordiques. He was traded to the New Jersey Devils in 1983, where he completed his NHL career at the end of the 1984–85 NHL season. [edit]Coaching career After playing six games with the Nova Scotia Oilers of the American Hockey League, he became an assistant coach for the team. During the 1987 season, Low was promoted to assistant coach with the Edmonton Oilers. In 1988, become the head coach of the Nova Scotia Oilers and would remain in that position until 1989 when the team was renamed the Cape Breton Oilers. In 1990, Low was named an assistant coach with the Edmonton Oilers. Six years later he became the head coach of the Oilers, a position he held for four seasons. After coaching the Houston Aeros for a season, he was named the head coach of the New York Rangers. After being relieved of his coaching duties with the Rangers, he would still remain in the organization as a scout until 2004. During the summer of 2004, he became a scout and goaltender coach for the Ottawa Senators. In August 2007, Low was promoted to the position of assistant coach of the Ottawa Senators. He was fired from this position on February 27, 2008. He won the Stanley Cup in 1987, and 1990 as an assistant coach with the Edmonton Oilers.
