80. Bob Goldham

Called the “second goalie” for his penchant for throwing himself in front of the puck to stop any offensive burst, Bob Goldham was one of the premier defenders of his era. Goldham's career started a little late as he was a member of the Canadian Navy during World War II, but upon his return to the professional game, there was little doubt that he was among the best at pure defensive hockey. Goldham became best known to many for his work with the CBC during the Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts in the ’70s. Maybe it is that combination of on and off ice work that could help him reach the Hall.
