    Post Los Angeles Kings to hold open tryouts in search for emergency goalie

    http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/2...ncy-goaltender

    It's a story right out of Hollywood. The Los Angeles Kings are hosting open tryouts on Sept. 27 to find their emergency goaltender.

    "The NHL requires each home team to have an emergency goalie in the stands for every game and we thought this would be a good opportunity to see who in our area is best qualified for the job," Kings president Luc Robitaille said in a news release. "It will be interesting, that is for sure."

    The event will take place at the team's training facility; the team promises "a member of the Kings hockey operations department" will be on hand to evaluate.

    What are the Kings looking for in this understudy role? Someone at least 18 years old " who has played a high level" of amateur hockey but has not signed a contract to play in a professional league.

    I always just assumed their goalie coach would fill in, in an emergency.

    I believe the NHL made it a rule that each team must have a designated Emergency Backup Goalie at each Home game, hence these kinds of contests.
