Middlebrook was a perennial minor leaguer during his entire pro career, bouncing around with 5 different NHL
teams/systems, and retiring in 1986...
Wait a second... Lemme take another look at his picture...
Yeah, as I started preparation to write this page earlier, I noticed that he was a right handed catcher (Chico Resch calls it
the "funny hand") and did a double take. That's a rarity for Devils goalies. In fact, the only other right-handed catching
goalie they've had was Mike McKenna. By strange coincidence, Middlebrook did coach McKenna when he was living
in St. Louis; he had coached both youth and high school level hockey for 20 years in the city.
In 2013, he took a job coaching at Lindenwood University in Illinois, and has been there since.
