Number two goaltender gets number 30


Peter Budaj will wear the sainted jersey number immortalized by Chris Nilan … not to mention Mathieu Garon and, uh-oh, David Aebischer.

But two great Canadiens goaltenders, Gump Worsley and Rogie Vachon, wore number 30.

So did  Tony Esposito (fleetingly), Phil Myre and Wayne Thomas..

Other notable 30s: Turner Stevenson and  Keith Acton.

• Justin Goldman at Dobber Hockey thinks Budaj will be good. So does the Goalie Guild. Both highlight the positive influence of goaltending coach Pierre Groulx.
