Biographical Info

Félix “The Cat” Potvin (born June 23, 1971, in Anjou, Quebec) is a retired National Hockey League goaltender. Potvin was drafted in the 2nd round, 31st overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1990 NHL entry draft. It wasn’t until the 1992–1993 season that Potvin became a regular in the NHL. That season he played 48 games, compiling a 2.50 GAA (1st in the NHL) and a solid .910 save %. The rapid acceleration of his development led the coaching staff to establish him as their #1 goaltender. His dynamic performance made him a finalist for the Calder Trophy. In September 2003, Potvin was signed to a 1-year contract by the Boston Bruins. He backed-up Calder Trophy Winner Andrew Raycroft during the 2003–04 season. Coincidentally, Raycroft broke Potvin’s record for consecutive games played by a Maple Leafs goalie during the 2006–07 season. Potvin has not played for an NHL team since the 2003–04 season. Although Potvin has never officially announced his retirement as a player, an NHL comeback is highly unlikely given the length of time since he last played professional hockey. Potvin currently lives with his family in Magog, Quebec, and is a goalie coach for the midget AAA Magog Cantonniers.
