Detroit Red Wings

Small but incredibly acrobatic, ROGER CROZIER was born in Bracebridge Ontario and was a member of the Chicago Black Hawks farm system. But with Glenn Hall and Denis DeJordy sharing goaltending duties, the future for CROZIER in Chicago wasn't too bright. During the summer of 1963, ROGER was sent to Detroit with Ron Ingram for Howie Young. That fall, CROZIER played 15 games, earned two shutouts and played well for the Red Wings. The next season, 1964-65, ROGER CROZIER earned the starting goalkeeper's spot for Detroit, and played every minute of every game for the Wings. His 40 wins were the most in the NHL, and fuelled Detroit to a first place finish. That season, the rookie won 40, lost 22 and tied 7. His goals-against average was 2.42, while the six shutouts CROZIER earned were the most in the NHL. When the Professional Hockey Writers voted, ROGER CROZIER was the CALDER TROPHY winner, with the Toronto Maple Leafs' Ron Ellis finishing second. CROZIER was also the First Team NHL All-Star. But the rookie award was not ROGER's first. He had won the AHL's rookie of the year award, the Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award, the year prior to the CALDER
