Rogie Vachon

Rogatien Rosaire "Rogie" Vachon (born September 8, 1945 in Palmarolle, Quebec) is a retired French-Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender who played for the Montreal Canadiens, Los Angeles Kings, Detroit Red Wings, and Boston Bruins in the National Hockey League.

Vachon shared the 1968 Vezina Trophy with Gump Worsley while with the Canadiens, along with three Stanley Cups. He was runner up for the 1975 Vezina Trophy. Vachon was traded to the Kings in 1971, where he achieved his greatest individual success. He was named to the NHL's second all-star team in 1975 and 1977. His number 30 was the first number retired by the Kings in a ceremony on February 14, 1985. He ended his career with the Boston Bruins in 1982. He has since served in a variety of executive positions with the Los Angeles Kings organization.

Known for his great reflexes and quick glove hand, Vachon was considered one of the premier one-on-one goaltenders of his era. He never allowed a goal on a penalty shot in his entire career. Internationally, Vachon was the starting goaltender for Canada's 1976 Canada Cup team where he achieved a record of 6 wins and 1 loss, with 2 shutouts and a sparkling 1.39 goals against average. Canada captured the championship with a two-game sweep of Czechoslovakia, and Vachon was named best goaltender of the tournament and Canadian MVP.
