by Tylergallo - 33 cards (Last updated on Feb 11, 2020)

1. 1985-86 Topps #36 Glenn Resch

"Chico" was-- and still is-- the man. Longtime Devils broadcaster returned to broadcasting last season after a short hiatus. Appeared in 198 games for New Jersey (not counting his Colorado days) going 49-113-20 compiling an .867 save % and a 4.13 GAA.

2. 1988-89 Edmonton Oilers Action Magazine Tenth Anniversary Commemerative #102 Lindsay Middlebrook

Have not found a Devils card yet for Middlebrook; however, he played for New Jersey in their inaugural season, appearing in nine games and going 0-6-1 with a .832 save % and a whopping 5.40 GAA.

3. 1984-85 O-Pee-Chee #115 Ron Low

Low appeared in 81 games for the Devils from 1983-1985. Had a 16-43-9 record with a .863 % and a 4.87 GAA. Devils teams in their early days were abysmal.

4. 2014-15 Cardset Finland - Liiga 40 #NNO Hannu Kamppuri

This is Kamppuri's only card with an image. Hannu Kamppuri appeared in 13 games during the 1984-85 season with New Jersey and went 1-10-1 with a .845 % and a 5.11 GAA.

5. 1988-89 ProCards Adirondack Red Wings AHL #NNO Sam St. Laurent

Sam St. Laurent appeared in 4 games for New Jersey during their 1985-86 season, going 2-1-0 with a .883 % and 4.15 GAA.

6. 1990-91 Score American #93 Kirk McLean

Before he had himself a nice career elsewhere, Kirk McLean began his career in New Jersey. The future 2x all-star (1990, 1992) only appeared in 6 games for the devils from 1985-1987, compiling a 2-2-0 record with a .840 % ad a 4.66 GAA. In September of '87 he was traded to Vancouver with Greg Adams for Patrik Sundstrom and would appear in the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals (should have been against his old team ;))

7. 1987-88 Topps #58 Alain Chevrier

Right before Devils goalies started to be competent, there was Alain Chevrier. From 1985-88, Chevrier appeared in 140 games for the Devils, going 53-63-7 with a .866 % and a 4.22 GAA. He had the honor of the most goals allowed in the league during the 1986-87 season. He was traded to Chicago for Steve Rooney in July of '88.

8. 1993-94 Score #207 Craig Billington

The most famous Devils' backup goalie's backup was Craig Billington. Billington began his career in NJ and appeared in 113 games, including 2 in the team's 1992 playoff run. He went 43-46-8 with a .895 % and a 4.06 GAA, right before he was traded for another goalie on this list in 1993. Billington had himself a nice career as a backup.

9. 2000-01 Pacific #245 Chris Terreri

Brodeur's most prominent backup was Chris Terreri. He appeared in 329 total games for New Jersey (27 in the playoffs) from 1986, 1988-1996 and also from 1998-2000 with a 118-118-34 record, .892 % and a 3.07 GAA. He won a Stanley Cup with the team in 1995.

10. 1987-88 Topps #140 Bob Sauve

Sauve was a very experienced goaltender when he arrived in NJ in 1988. The 1984-85 Jennings and 1979-80 Vezina winner wrapped up his career with the Devils, appearing in 54 games, including 5 in the team's first playoff run in '87. Bob went 14-21-4 with a .859 % and a 3.88 GAA in his regular season career with the Devils.

Great list! Some very obscure names here that I didn't know about before. I was at the Rock for Blackwood's first shutout. Kid has a great future, and with Schneider's status NJ will need the new MB to keep it rolling.

Too bad Ari Ahonen never got even that one game.
