|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Like most of the goalies that the Devils had in the 80s, St. Laurent did not see a whole lot of games on the NHL level.
Actually, St. Laurent was a career minor leaguer, having played with the Maine Mariners, the Toledo Golddiggers, the
Adirondack Red Wings, and the Binghamton Rangers.
A couple key notes about him. That one shutout listed there? It's his only career shutout in the NHL. He won 1-0 against
the St. Louis Blues March 27, 1986.
And notice the face mask he's wearing. That's a style that Jacques Plante and Bernie Parent wore back in the day. He is
the last North American professional goalie to wear that kind of mask.
He retired while with the Binghamton Rangers after the 91-92 season, a year where he was also representing Canada in
the Albertville Olympics as their third goalie.
He would stay with the Rangers as a goaltending consultant after retirement, a job he held until 2004. He did the same
thing in Germany for a year before he switched to doing private practices.
