While the 2017-18 Chicago Blackhawks season was mostly forgettable, there was a couple of bright spots and entertaining moments.
One of the unforgettable moments from the 2017-18 season was without a doubt the debut of emergency backup goalie, Scott Foster.
Due to injuries to Corey Crawford, Anton Forsberg, and Collin Delia, Foster the financial accountant at Golub Capital got to make his NHL debut.
Foster made seven saves during the the game and enjoyed a quick rise to fame and local stardom.
It was an incredible experience for Foster and he took the timeout to thank fans for making it something he'll never forget.
"My family and I would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Chicago Blackhawks fans, as well as the organization's players, coaches, equipment managers, front office staff and alumni," he said. "The heartfelt responses to the crazy events that took place on March 29 are still truly overwhelming. Having the opportunity to spend time with everybody at the Blackhawks Convention was the perfect culmination of such a memorable moment in my life. Even if for the briefest of moments, dreams can come true. Thank you all again!"
