During an era when the Original Six only carried one goalie, New York Rangers’ prospect Gilles Villemure had to languish in the minors. However, he was called up to play tandem with Eddie Giacomin in 1970. The pair ended up with the Vezina Trophy at the end of the season. After five solid seasons, he was traded to Chicago where he played back-up to the established Tony Esposito. He retired in 1976 and is active as an NHL alumnus. During the hockey offseason, Villemure was a professional harness racehorse driver. He now resides in Levittown, New York.
