from the Toronto Star,
Islanders fans love Wade Dubielewicz, mostly because they can chant his nickname – “Du-bie, Du-bie” – whenever he makes a save.
They’ll love him even more if the Goalie Who Came Out of Nowhere can pull off the next to impossible and rally the New York Islanders into the playoffs….
He’s listed generously at 5-foot-10 – maybe with skates on – and he’s more a reaction-type goalie. Think Mike Palmateer. Or maybe Yoda.
On his mask, he’s painted Islanders history – Bobby Nystrom celebrating and Denis Potvin hoisting the Cup – as well as the Star Wars character.
“I don’t really look like a goalie, and Yoda doesn’t really look like a Jedi warrior,” he said.
