John Vanbiesbrouck entered the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame on Friday night as the NHL’s winningest American-born goalie.
“One statistic you don’t know is that I had almost an equal number of losses,’’ the former Rangers star said. “That meant for a lot of cold, dark rides in New York City. It’s in those times that you grow, gain courage and ask the deepest questions.’‘
Vanbiesbrouck retired in 2002 with a 374-346-119 record. He won the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s best goalie in 1986.
