Flyers tie record with seventh different starting goalie of season

Yahoo! Sports

The Philadelphia Flyers are apparently about to tie an NHL record by starting their seventh different goalie in the same season, and the netminder and coach involved make it an even better story.

Journeyman goalie Mike McKenna has been tabbed for the start. The 35-year-old is suiting up for his third NHL team so far in 2018-19; he didn’t play a game for the Vancouver Canucks, while he appeared in 10 for the Ottawa Senators and is about to play for Philly. McKenna also played six games in the AHL this season.

As Sam Carchidi reports for the Philadelphia Inquirer, the goalie is well-traveled (just look at his hockeydb page), and McKenna has a good sense of humor about it.
