Five years of English domestic competitions yielded a further 24 shut-outs.  He grew up in the Canadian city of Winnipeg, played for the University of Manitoba and then made his name with the Moncton Hawks - missing just one game in 220 games over three seasons. In the 1932 finals of the Allen Cup he achieved the first back-to-back clean sheets in the competition and went 417 minutes without conceding a goal.

Fox Puck
Pucks used for NHL games broadcast by Fox were unique. They were loaded with infrared sensors that enable special computers to track their movement and present the puck on-screen as a streaking comet, which helped viewers follow the action. Called FoxTrax, it borrowed the technology employed in smart bombs. Each puck had a battery-powered transmitter inside that activated automatically when it hit the ice. The puck also has four sensors on its top surface, four on its bottom and 12 around its sides. As it travelled across the ice, its motion was picked up by 18 sensors located around the rink, which send the data to computers. The technology made its debut during the NHL's 1996 All-Star game in Boston.
