It doesn't matter where they come from, all they need to do is stop the damn puck. In Canada, more phone calls have been made in search of goalies (all the way from pick up games to rec league to pro hockey) than the search for girls. Well, maybe not but it's close.

Is that Norm Lacombe? What's he doing here? Why he is a special guest on NationRadio this week, along with Derek Zona, Rebels Play by Play man Cam Moon and Jim Byers play-by-play man for the Oklahoma City Barons.

Got him. Need him. Got him. Need him. What fan worth his salt hasn't played that game while sifting through a fistful of hockey cards with a buddy at some point as a kid?

Back before Steve Tambellini was the general manager of the Edmonton Oilers, he had a long hockey career. He started his WHL (then WCHL) career with the Lethbridge Broncos in 1975-76, and as he closes in on 40 years in the game it can be a little staggering to think about the vast network of hockey contacts he’s formed.

The Oilers drafted netminder Tyler Bunz with the first pick of the 5th round, 121st overall, last June and since then Bunz has progressed nicely. He had a stellar regular season for the Medicine Hat Tigers going 35-13-8 with a 2.47 GAA and a solid 0.919 SV%. His best play might have come in the five game upset over the Red Deer Rebels and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in the 2nd round of the WHL playoffs. Bunz was spectacular in those games, and that along with his consistent regular season play has earned him an invite to the goaltending camp for Canada's World Junior team this June.
