Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Frank Caprice
King Richards throne was always Frank Caprices bed of nails. Richard, as in Brodeur, was number one goalie in Vancouver for many years, and Caprice was his ever-present backup who could never surpass the King and become number one man in net.

As a result, Caprice never played a playoff game. Only once was he given a chance to be number one, that to start the 1984-85 season when Brodeur was demoted. But that December, Caprice tore his hamstring and the rest of the year was a wipeout. He saw time in Fredericton almost every season he was in Vancouver, and after six years he was released in 1988, spending time first in the minors then many a year in Europe.

His time in Italy and Britain was successful and enduring, and along the way Caprice even managed to play briefly with the Vancouver Voodoo, the roller hockey team whose more popular star was Tiger Williams.
