Emergency goalie, Western Michigan University alum, pressed into action in Blackhawks win

That injury then thrust Delia into the starting role in quick fashion. It turned out to be sooner.

Scott Foster had some story to tell around the office water cooler on Friday. It came out of nowhere.

On Wednesday, Delia was recalled from the AHL's Rockford Icehogs, but wasn't expected to make his National Hockey League debut on Thursday as Anton Forsberg was expected to start against the Jets, but sustained a lower-body injury before the game.

Every team keeps a rolodex of local emergency third goalies now, but Foster will reign as the one who got to play longest in today's modern-day National Hockey League. As TSN reports, it was his first bout of action "since 20 minutes in relief with Western Michigan University in the 2005-06 season". Mark Scheifele also scored for the Jets, and Eric Comrie made 36 saves while subbing for starter Connor Hellebuyck.

Quenneville just laughed as this all went down.

Foster also made a glancing reference to his continued involvement in men's league hockey.

The NHL has a quirky rule about emergency goaltenders.

"I know it's a process, " Delia said.

"The initial shock happened when I had to dress. And then I think you just kind of black out after that".

Collin Delia stopped 31 shots for Chicago.

Foster's day job is with Golub Capital. I couldn't even tell you who it is right now. They chanted "Foster" a number of times.

"That's something you'll never forget", Foster said during an entertaining postgame interview.

Foster reportedly told the Blackhawks' equipment staff as they took his bag out of his auto when he arrived at the arena: "Holy crap, I hope I don't have to play tonight". "This is something I can go home and tell my kids and they can tell their friends". "You understand what's happening and they're gonna have a lot of fun with it, so you might as well, too". Talk about your one shining moment. "He was great", defenseman Brent Seabrook said.

Asked if he received any advice, Foster joked, "I don't think I heard anything but, 'Put your helmet on'". But it's still using the guy's name to make money, which goes into the big revenue pot the teams share with their players.

Jorge Alves, an equipment manager for the Carolina Hurricanes, was believed to be the first goaltender of the modern era to appear in a game when he suited up for the team last season. "I get that every once in a while for practice. It was a different routine for sure for him, so he did as good as expected", said Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville.

The one-day contracts are generally unpaid, and Foster, a father of two young children, has come to the United Center before to be on call as backup goalie.
