TTM Success! Glenn Hall - Hall of Famer

I really have got to knock off some of these through the mail success' I've got piling up in the draft folder.
So today I give you Hall of Fame goalie, Glenn Hall.
 Glenn "Mr Goalie" Hall spent 4 seasons in Detroit before being traded to Chicago where he played for another 10 seasons.
In the 1967 expansion draft, St Louis chose both him and Jacques Plante for their new goalie tandem. Talk about instant success.
 Glenn ended his career with over 400 wins, 84 shutouts, and a 2.49 GAA with one Stanley Cup win. He won rookie of the year in 1956. Over his career he also won three vezina trophies as best goalie.
Glenn is probably best known to the casual fan as the goalie in the photograph of Bobby Orr flying through the air after scoring the 1970 Stanley Cup Winning goal in overtime. You know the one.

I'm glad to have a success from such a great player.
