TTM Mail Day #23: Don Edwards

The mailing has really been coming in lately thanks to sending out a stack of requests when I was away on vacation.

Don Edwards was an above average NHL goalie for 11 seasons. While he did win a Vezina during his career, I think he is best remembered for giving up Gretzky's record setting 77th goal of the season in  81-82 breaking Esposito's record of 76.

Edwards found the most success in his career with the Buffalo Sabres but was never able to get the Sabres deep into the playoffs. A shake-up had to be made and Edwards was shipped to the Flames where he never posted a goals against average below four. He finished his career with the Toronto Maple Leafs and then continued to play senior hockey through the rest of the 1980's.
