    In the history of the NHL or semi-pro hockey, has there ever been a player who played both goal and another position?

    I dont think there was a player who changed the positions regularly but here are some who had to play goalie cause he went down injured or was in the penalty box:

    Lester Patrick had to play goal when he was a coach cause his goalie went down injured.
    King Clancy in one game played all positions.
    Odie Cleghorn in 1925/26 played the G position despite being an attacker.
    Normie Himes in 1927/28.
    Charlie Conacher for 9 minutes also played a G.
    Red Horner and Alex Levinsky for Toronto in 1932/33. Their GAA is 60 as they got 1 goal in one minute.
    Albert LeDuc in 1931/32 for Montreal.
    John Plaxton, Montreal Maroons in 1932/33.
    Harold Starr in 1931/32 for the Montreal Maroons.
    Al Shields, New York Americans in 1931/32.
    Douglas Young, Detroit 1933/34.
    Roger Jenkins in 1938/39 for the New York Americans.
    Charlie Sands, Montreal Canadiens in 1939/40.
    Andy Brannigan, New York Americans in 1940/41.
