Episode 27 of the Pro Hockey Alumni Podcast features goaltender Phil Myre, who played over 400 NHL games in 14 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens, Atlanta Flames, St. Louis Blues, Philadelphia Flyers, Colorado Rockies and Buffalo Sabres.
Phil was selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the first round, fifth overall, in 1966. He played parts of three seasons with the Habs before being chosen by the Atlanta Flames in the 1972 expansion draft.
Phil and Dan Bouchard were an outstanding 1-2 tandem in goal for the next six seasons. Individually, Phil’s finest NHL season came in 1974-75 when he recorded five shutouts and a 2.85 GAA for the Flames.
Later in his career Phil helped backstop the Flyers to an incredible 35 game unbeaten streak.
After retiring as a player, Phil moved on to an impressive career as a goaltending coach with many teams, including the Detroit Red Wings, LA Kings and Florida Panthers.
Phil is now a sports consultant and inspirational speaker. You can visit his website at philmyretalkshockey.com.
