One of the greatest of all time, "Mr. Goalie" spent 10 years between Chicago's pipes, earning eight All-Star nods, posting a 275-229-106 mark with 51 shutouts, and backstopping the Blackhawks' 1961 Stanley Cup championship that ended a 23-year drought for the franchise. A forerunner of the butterfly style, he was also well-known for getting sick to his stomach before games. Perhaps his most impressive feat was playing 502 consecutive regular season games, and 50 more in the playoffs, without a facemask. A back injury caused him to leave a game against Boston on November 8, 1963, thus ending his remarkable run. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1975.
