HHOF Makes Room For Belfour

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Longtime goaltending instructor and hockey school operator Steve McKichan picked up the phone in the summer of 2004 to hear a man’s voice asking him if he took adult students at his camp.

No, McKichan told the man, he didn’t have room.

Too bad. The man said he had some problems against Philadelphia the previous spring in the playoffs and was looking to work on some stuff.

Philadelphia? Playoffs?


“I thought I was talking to a beer-league goalie,” McKichan recently told ESPN.com.

No, it was Ed Belfour.

“I said, ‘Oh yeah, I think we’ll find room for you in the camp.”
