We are honored to have Glenn Hall, Mr. Goalie, as our first featured legend. Best known for his influence on what is today known as “butterfly style” goaltending, Hall was an award-winning goalie with Detroit and St. Louis, and won the Stanley Cup with Chicago in 1961.
Glenn will be remembered for his record that – it’s safe to say – will never be beat: playing 552 consecutive games in net, most of which were without a goalie mask! In his 18 seasons in the NHL, he finished an incredible 14 of those seasons with a winning record. He’s fourth on the NHL’s all-time career shutouts list with 84.
He retired with the St. Louis Blues in 1971 and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1975. Today, he lives on his family farm in Alberta and keeps those around him laughing with his charm and wit. We encourage you to read more about Glenn’s monumental hockey career.
Ed had the wonderful opportunity to interview Glenn prior to the annual Kinsmen fundraising dinner in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, in February 2020 where they were being honored along with three other HOF goalies: Bernie Parent, Grant Fuhr and Martin Brodeur. The three-day celebration was a once-in-a-lifetime moment for all involved. Enjoy this special conversation.
