Celebrate legendary goalies from the Original Six, who fearlessly played with minimal equipment. This coin series features Canadian-born goalies whose performances transformed them into hockey legends.
The goalies who played hockey during the Original Six era were some of the toughest athletes to compete in any sport. They played with little protective gear, no face/head protection. Unlike today's players, they were poorly paid and had little support from the team if they were injured.
Terry Sawchuk is best remembered for leading the Detroit Red Wings to three Stanley Cup wins in five years. He won a fourth cup with Toronto in 1967, and shared the Vezina Trophy in 1965. He often played hurt, and developed a number of chronic injuries over his career, finishing in 1970 with a lifetime 2.51 GAA.
