Scott Foster had never played a professional hockey game and hadn't appeared in any competitive contest since 2005, but he came up big for the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday. Foster replaced the injured Collin Delia for his NHL debut against the Winnipeg Jets. Every NHL team has an EBU (emergency back up) always sitting in the stands at a game, and the 36-year-old Foster won an open tryout to get the role. It worked out for the Blackhawks, as Foster saved seven shots after entering in the third period of their 6-2 win.
Talk about living the dream!
