Of all the goalies who have passed through the NHL, only 20 have incurred a penalty in their first game. Leading the way is the aforementioned D’Amour, who not only had 12 penalties in minutes but also two penalties. However, in more traditional terms, the only goalie to incur two minor penalties in an NHL debut is Dallas’ Marty Turco. Incredibly, he incurred two delay of game penalties within 85 seconds, the first at 9:10 of the opening period and then again at 10:35, Oct. 10, 2000, in a 5-2 road loss to Carolina.
