I’m sure most of you have heard the story by now of how the emergency goalie and former Zamboni driver was, incredibly enough, called into play for the Carolina Hurricanes after starting goaltender James Reimer and backup goalie Petr Mrazek had to take leave due to injuries. Ayres made eight saves in the third period and earned the first W ever by an emergency backup goalie. Epic.
And if you haven’t read up on it, that’s ok because Disney will be making a movie retelling the tale. No ordinary day at the office for Dave!
