A 36-year-old father of two was working at his accounting job in Chicago last week when he got the opportunity of a lifetime to play goalie for the Chicago Blackhawks. Scott Foster normally plays in a recreational league with some former college players and because the NHL has a rule requiring teams to have an emergency goalie on hand for home games, he usually does it by sitting in the press box and watching games.
But when the starting goalie got hurt hours before the game, Foster was set to be the emergency goalie. And when backup goalie Collin Delia had to leave the game in the third period, Foster got the chance to live his dream. He stepped in for the last 14 minutes of the game, stopping all seven shots to secure a 6-2 win for the Blackhawks over the Winnipeg Jets."This is something that no one can ever take away from me," Foster said. "It’s something that I can go home and tell my kids and they can tell their friends. Just a ton of fun."
