Worthless NHL trivia of the week

Ex-Flyer goalies Ray Emery, Antero Niittymaki, and Marty Biron each have the opportunity to win a Stanley Cup this season. How rare would it be? 47 different goalies have played for the Flyers since they joined the NHL in 1967. Only one has won a Cup AFTER playing for the Flyers: Ken Wregget, with the 1992 Pittsburgh Penguins (with a little help from Rick Tocchet and Kjell Samuelsson). So yeah, the odds are pretty low.

Note: Two goalies won a Cup BEFORE playing for the Flyers, both with Montreal: Rick St. Croix and Michel “Bunny” Larocque, whose Flyers career lasted a total of two games.

Also note, Vancouver fans: the only goalie to win a Cup after playing for the Canucks, out of 52 total Canuck goalies: Corey Schwab, with the 2003 Devils. Sorry, Montreal (Alex Auld).
