Cut­ting It Su­per Close

Of the 631 lucky play­ers to score in their first games, none have left it so late as Bernie Ruelle. He made his NHL de­but as a mem­ber of the Detroit Red Wings on Oct. 31, 1943, and he scored his goal at 19:59 of the third pe­riod. He was merely one sec­ond from re­main­ing in anonymity, but he made his­tory all the same.
