Goalie Lindsay Middlebrook played a few games for four different NHL clubs in the 70s and 80s. He was a solid journeyman back up who enjoyed most of his success in the minors.
Born in Collingwood, Ontario Middlebrook spent four years at St. Louis University where he was named to the CCHA first all-star team in 1975. He was signed as a free agent by the New York Rangers in 1977 and led the AHL in wins and was a first team all-star two years later.
In June, 1979, Middlebrook was taken by the Winnipeg Jets in the Expansion Draft that followed the disbanding of the World Hockey Association. He was a part time reserve for the club and played 24 games in two years. He also excelled for the CHL's Tulsa Oilers and was named to the league's second all-star team in 1981.
After Winnipeg acquired Ed Staniowski, Middlebrook was traded to the Minnesota North Stars. He dressed for few games but had little chance of playing with Gilles Meloche and Don Beaupre ahead of him. He joined the New Jersey Devils and Edmonton Oilers for a few games each then settled into the minors before retiring in 1986.
