    So one of my tasks for my goaltender page is a list of all Cup-winning goaltenders. And I'm looking through The Official National Hockey League Stanley Cup Centennial Book as my source, and the 1979 Montreal Canadiens' entry lists three goaltenders on the Cup - Dryden, Larocque, and Richard Sevigny.

    Considering that Sevigny didn't make his NHL debut until November 18th of that year, I'm exceptionally surprised to see this. Is his name really on the Cup? Does anyone have a picture of their piece of the Cup to prove/disprove this?

    Thanks!

    In game two of the final, Laroque was injured in the pre-game warm up, a game he was supposed to start, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that Sevigny dressed and served as backup to Dryden in a least one of the games in the final.

    I'd forgotten all about that, but that's got to be it. And it at least gives me a place to focus my efforts. Thanks! :handclap:
