From great friend of the blog Scott Wasilewski from The Strangest One of All:
It is playoff time and as I watch TSN, I debated doing this nominee for a while. Even though people widely know him in North America for his broadcasting prowess, not many actually realize his goaltending prowess. When looking at it over and over—the fact remains he only played 81 NHL games, not a full season in this day-in-age; but is still one of the most popular guys when it comes to hockey. That’s right—holy jumpin’....it’s Darren Pang.
Now, Panger had started off his career with the Nepean Raiders in Junior “A” where he would play along side Steve Yzerman (a friendship that last to this day) for the 1980-81 season, before moving onto the Ontario Hockey League with the Belleville Bulls. With the Bulls in the 1981-82 season, Pang would get a majority of the starts over Ken Porteous with 47 and a 15-21-1 record for the year. The 1982-83 season started off shaky, as Pang went 3-8-0 with the Bulls, before being sent to the Ottawa 67s. That’s where Pang’s game seemed to change, as he would go 28-14-3 with the 67s. Pang would help the 67s get to the semi-finals before losing to the eventual OHL champion Oshawa Generals.
