Frank "Mr. Zero" Brimsek
Birth: Sep. 26, 1913
Death: Nov. 11, 1998

Hall of Fame Hockey Player. Born in Eveleth, Minnesota, he started his hockey career playing as a goaltender for the Pittsburgh Yellowjackets of the Eastern Amateur Hockey League in the early 1930s. In 1938, he joined the Boston Bruins and was nicknamed "Mr. Zero" because he twice had three consecutive shutouts as their goalie, winning the NHL Rookie of the Year Award. With the Bruins, he helped the team win the Stanley Cup four times in (1938-39 and 1940-41). After serving in the US Coast Guard during World War II, he resumed his career with the Bruins in 1945, playing until he retired as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks in 1949. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966 and into the US Hockey Hall of Fame in 1973. He died at age 85 in Virginia, Minnesota. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)

I left as tribute 2 years ago but wanted to say happy birthday. Had an upsetting night last night as a new couch arrived.
