Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Garry Bauman
Garry Bauman shared goaltending duties with Montreal teammate Charlie Hodge in the 1967 all-star game, combining to record the first--and still only--shutout in the history of the showcase event. It was one of only three games Bauman played for the Canadiens. He was selected by the Minnesota North Stars in the 1967 Expansion Draft.

Bauman first started as a goalkeeper when his High River, Alberta team lost its goalie to an injury. He was recruited and vacated his position on the left wing to don the pads. He recorded a shutout in his first game, a 5-0 win, and never left. He attended Michigan Tech on a hockey scholarship and was twice an All-American, a unique etrance to the NHL given that this was the early 1960s.

After joining the North Strs, Bauman played just 32 games over the next two years as well as a handful of games in the minors. He returned to Alberta to play for Calgary in senior leagues but retired in 1972 after a total of 35 NHL appearances.
