Junior goalie gets unexpected call-up to Red Wings


Ontario Hockey League goalie Troy Passingham was hanging out with his girlfriend Monday when he received the call that every junior goalie would love to get: The Detroit Red Wings wanted him.

With Joey McDonald down in the minors and Chris Osgood possibly unavailable, the Red Wings brought in Passingham on a 24-hour tryout contract to possibly be Jimmy Howard's emergency backup Wednesday for a game against the Vancouver Canucks.

At the morning skate, Passingham said he didn't even know how much money he will receive, although that seemed to be the least of his concerns.
"My mindset will be to be prepared, and hopefully I will just watch, but you never know," said Passingham, who was an overage junior goalie for the Sarnia (Ontario) Sting who didn't make the playoffs.

Early in the afternoon, the Red Wings still weren't sure of Osgood's status. He has been recovering from surgery. The Red Wings sent down McDonald when they recalled Jan Mursak. Tight against the salary cap, the Red Wings ey have short-term injuries/illnesses with Pavel Datsyuk, Johan Franzen and Jiri Hudler. Coach Mike Babcock will make a decision on Hudler after the pre-game skate.

Passingham hopes to be signed by a pro team, but if he doesn't receive any offers, he plans to play Canadian college hockey. "Still chasing the dream," he said.

So if Howie has another stinker, we can say that he will be Passingham? No? Anyone?

K, carry on.

This is a good way to work around the cap though. I'm sure Howard will do fine in net tonight and it's better to have him as back up than Ozzie if he's not ready.

I'm also available to go tonight, just in case. I'll even be a punching bag for a Canuck if the Wings need some momentum.

you'd probably play with more heart....

I'm also available to go tonight, just in case. I'll even be a punching bag for a Canuck if the Wings need some momentum.

I'm available to shove my louisville down the throat of the first player to give a Wing a headshot or knee to knee. I don't care, suspended me! First canuck to elbow someone gets a two hander to the throat...

Hey, English gurus :) What does "overage" mean? Is it typo?
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Over-age.

Means 20 or older on the team. Usually there is a cap as to how many you can have on a team.

Average OHL-er by his stats, so if he gets into an NHL game, we very well just may see him get a s*** in net, haha
