Sin­gu­lar Play­off De­but

Ex­actly 101 of 7,597 play­ers have made their NHL de­but in a play­off game, and only five of that num­ber have been goalies: Earl Robert­son (Detroit), Bob Cham­poux (Detroit), Mike Richter (N.Y. Rangers), Daniel Berthiaume (Win­nipeg) and Paul Good­man (Chicago). More amaz­ingly, only one won the game – Cham­poux. That came in a 5-4 road win for the Red Wings in Chicago. Among the 96 skaters, only three man­aged to score a goal: Rod Brind’Amour (St. Louis), Father Les Costello (Toronto) and Ed­die Em­berg (Mon­treal). Only eight oth­ers man­aged an as­sist, and no player has had even two points in an NHL de­but that was a play­off game.
