Goal Line Report

Going Back a Bit

Good friend of the blog Scotty Wasilewski has a terrific blog over at The Strangest One of All, a blog you should all check out when you have a chance.

On Monday’s, he does profiles of goaltenders we seem to forget about. For instance, he’s done one on Rick Tabaracci, Dominic Roussel, and good old Jim Carey.

Today, he takes a look at Mario Gosselin:

While there are many common names in hockey (lest we forget about the two Petr Sykoras in the NHL at the same time), this one name is shared by a NASCAR Truck Series driver and at the head of a Quebec Governmental Position. While that is nothing more than a “factoid,” it links up to this AGM as trying to find research on him is rather jumbled…as you see from the intro. Yet, this guy has plenty of history behind him, like playing for two now-defunct teams and having two teams still established. Whether it’s a kiss-of-death or not—another “factoid.” This week, we welcome Mario Gosselin to the AGM ranks.
