Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Scott Foster
Scott Foster was born on January 17, 1992 in Sarnia, Ontario. He played college hockey at Western Michigan University, but it was more than 10 years after his collegiate career ended that he made his lone professional appearance.

During the 2017-18 season, the Chicago Blackhawks suffered a rash of injuries in goal. As such, Foster was signed to an amateur tryout contract to serve as the club's emergency goaltender. He attended 15 games in that capacity, but did not dress until the evening of March 29, 2018. He began the game as the Blackhawks' backup and was not expected to play, but when starting goaltender Collin Delia was injured during the third period, Foster was thrust into action. He would go on to stop all seven shots that he faced in 14 minutes of play to preserve the Blackhawks's 6-2 victory. In the process Foster became the first emergency goaltender to ever stop a shot and he holds the rare distinction of having a perfect 1.000 career save percentage.

Foster appeared at the 2018 NHL Award Ceremony, where he presented the Vezina Trophy to Pekka Rinne.
