Proof Positive Of Growing Trend In NHL Goalies

Ben Bishop and Darren Pang

Ben Bishop, all 6-foot-6 of him, is a three-time Vezina Trophy finalist who is tending goal for the Dallas Stars in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Darren Pang, all 5-foot-5 of him, is an analyst on TV broadcasts for the St. Louis Blues, the team facing Bishop’s Stars in the Western Conference semifinals. Pang played 81 NHL goals in goal for the Chicago Blackhawks from 1984-89.

Side by side, they offer ample evidence in how NHL goaltenders size up today compared to a generation ago.
