Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Norm Aubin
Man, could this guy score before he got to the NHL! Eight goals in one game for Verdun to break a record most recently set by Guy Lafleur. A total of 258 goals in 244 games in junior and then 43 in his first year in the AHL.

The Leafs drafted him 51st overall in 1979, but when he got to the NHL he responded with seven goals in his first eleven games and then fizzled, scoring just 18 times in 69 games over two years between 1981 and 83.

Demoted to St. Catharines, Aubin had one more story left in him. The Saints were in Glen Falls, New York to play the Adirondack Red Wings, but the starting goalie Bob Parent had been suspended, leaving only Vincent Tremblay to mind the goal. Halfway through the first period, Tremblay pulled a hamstring, and couldn't continue. Aubin donned the pads for the rest of the game, giving up five goals in a 6-3 loss. He retired altogether in 1985.
