Name That Old Red Wing: Episode 3

Episode two should have been a little more difficult than one. Still, someone guessed him: Greg Stefan. I appreciate the feedback, just wish it wasn't anonymous. Feel free to drop your name.

Stefan sums up 1980s Detroit Red Wings goal tending. He didn't have an all-star defense in front of him. Yet, he managed a 3.92 goals against average - in the 80s. Not too bad considering how awful the team was for some of those nine seasons. However, his save percentage was at .868. Not so great. He had slightly better playoff numbers.

Overall, Stefan can be remembered for his record in career penalty minutes - more than any other Detroit goalie to date. There were a few more brawls back then.

Time to move on to Episode three's feature.

This Red Wing also played with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He has a younger brother who is still active in the NHL. They both attended the University of North Dakota.

That shouldn't be too difficult.
