36-Year-Old Accountant Gets The Emergency Call To Play Goalie For NHL Team And Does Amazing

March 30, 2018

Scott Foster, an accountant by day and beer league goalie on the side, was asked to backup the Chicago Blackhawks Thursday night just in case the third string goalie was injured.

Of course, no one expected the 36-year-old to step on the ice, but starting goalie Anton Forsberg suffered an injury in pre-game warmups. The backup played well in relief but left early in the third period with a lower-body injury.

Foster got the call.

He stepped in and held one of the top scoring teams in the league, the Winnipeg Jets, to zero goals in 14 minutes of scoreless hockey.

The sold-out crowd at United Center chanted "Foster! Foster!" after every save.

"I think I’m just hitting my prime," Foster told the Chicago Sun-Times. "The initial shock happened when I had to dress. And then I think you just kind of black out after that.

"I’m an accountant by day. So a few hours ago I was sitting on my computer typing on the 10-key, and now I’m standing in front of you guys just finished 14 and a half minutes of NHL hockey."
