Iron Man of the Ice

Swift, E.M.
October 1992
Sports Illustrated;10/22/92, Vol. 77 Issue 17, p82
Glenn Hall watches as the Calgary Flames pepper their goaltenders with shots on the first day of 1992 training camp. As the shooters blast away unimpeded, Hall, who has been the Flames' goaltending consultant for nine years, ducks his head involuntarily each time a puck is deflected into the seats, smiling at himself as he does so. But this man, of all men, understands that you can't be too careful around flying rubber. In 15 of his 18 National Hockey League (NHL) seasons as a goalie--with the Detroit Red Wings, the Chicago Black Hawks and the St. Louis Blues--played without a mask, and his mug has the scars from some 250 stitches to prove it. INSET: TEN THAT WON'T TUMBLE.
