John Gibson of the Anaheim Ducks was all ready to make his fifth start of the season Sunday night against the Colorado Avalanche. Then warmups happened.

The 21-year old netminder suffered a pre-game lower-body injury, leaving freshly recalled Jason LaBarbera to take the starting job for the night. The only problem? Frederik Andersen was injured himself, so there was nobody to be the Ducks’ backup. (LaBarbera, by the way, was making his third start in three nights, having played for the AHL's Norfolk Admirals on Friday and Saturday before being summoned by the Ducks to travel to Colorado on Sunday morning. LaBarbera earned the win in all three games. Give that man a nap!)

Enter Ducks’ goaltending consultant Dwayne Roloson, who was with the club on its road trip.

The 45-year old Roloson, who last played on April 7, 2012 while a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning, was summoned to don the pads and back up LaBarbera.

This is all kosher under NHL rule 5.3, which states, “In regular League and Playoff games, if both listed goalkeepers are incapacitated, that team shall be entitled to dress and play any available goalkeeper who is eligible.” This is why the likes of Brett Leonhardt, Paul Deutsch, Ryan Vinz and Rob Laurie had their brief moments of fame in the past.

Very cool
Rolo could probably still stone people most nights. Great guy.

He sure was great against Vancouver in their 2003 run in the playoffs. Jacque going with the hot hand. Fernandez was hot against the Avs. Roloson was hot against the Canucks.

Mark Parrish has been sitting in with the KFAN morning crew on occasion. Pretty hilarious dude. I've enjoyed his contributions. My worry is he's eventually gonna say something that's gonna get him suspended. Feels like it's only a matter of time.

Now that Parrish isn't getting free money from the Wild he has to try and make a living somehow. He is back in school at St Cloud and doing color for their games on the schools broadcasts, and I suspect he is trying to broaden his horizons by getting on KFAN. I have heard him a few times and don't mind him, but his color announcing leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion.

I agree - his color commentary is pretty lifeless, although he can inform listeners on a behind-the-scenes level like other color commentators do. Perhaps with some experience he'll get better. I've met him and he's a really decent guy so I hope he has a lucrative career ahead of him.

The problem is that LaPanta looks even dumber when he is paired with a smart guy.

He told a story a couple of weeks ago about his recruiting visit with Doug Woog. He said it was basically 2+ hours of Woog telling him how bad he sucked, before telling him if he were to play a year or two of junior hockey, he could get a partial scholarship at the U. Parrish said it was obvious that Woog had never even seen him play. He didn't even realize what position he played. Later he was on a recruiting visit to SCSU and met Matt Cullen who was also on a recruiting visit. He told Cullen about the experience and Cullen laughed because Woog had done the exact same thing to him. They agreed to commit to SCSU together. His best moment in college hockey was scoring a hat trick against Woog's Gophers with Cullen assisting on every goal.

To this day Parrish's dad is convinced that Woog's chief scout (forget the name), who was taking over at Ohio gave Woog bogus scouting reports, so that he could recruit some of these guys to Ohio.
