A Dream End­ing

Thanks to coach Bill Peters, Jorge Alves is among the truly un­usual mem­bers of the NHL alumni. It was only last sea­son that Alves made his NHL de­but — and al­most cer­tainly his fi­nale as well. An equip­ment man­ager with the team, he signed a pro con­tract that af­ter­noon as an emer­gency re­place­ment, and with the team los­ing 3-1 in the dy­ing sec­onds, Peters in­serted Alves with 7.6 sec­onds left in the game. Alves didn’t record a shot against, but the 36-year-old did get his name into the league reg­is­ter as a goalie.
