Felix Potvin Biography
Flix The Cat Potvin was born June 23, 1971 and is a former National Hockey League goaltender.
Potvin was drafted in the 2nd round, 31st overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1990 NHL entry draft. In the 19911992 season, Potvin played 35 games for the St. John's Maple Leafs, compiling a 2.93 GAA. For his efforts, Potvin was awarded the Dudley Red Garrett Memorial Award (rookie of the year), the Baz Bastien Memorial Trophy as the top goaltender in the AHL and selected to the AHL First All-Star Team. During that season, Potvin was called up to the NHL and saw brief action in 4 games, compiling a 2.28 GAA and a .933 save percentage. While in the AHL, Potvin lived just outside the capital city in the area known as The Goulds.'
In the 19951996 season, Potvin was selected to his 2nd NHL All-Star Game. However, the Toronto Maple Leafs exited in the first round of the playoffs.
In the 19961997 season, with the aging of the defense corps in front of him, Potvin and the Maple Leafs would miss the playoffs. He would set an NHL record for most shots faced in a season, 2,438, later broken by Roberto Luongo during his stint with the Florida Panthers.
In the 19981999 season, Toronto signed free agent Curtis Joseph, leaving Potvin expendable. He would play in only 5 games due to a knee injury, before he and 6th round pick (Fedor Fedorov) were traded to the New York Islanders for defenceman Bryan Berard and a 6th round pick. Despite the new surroundings, Potvin was unable to reclaim the success he had earlier in his career.
In the 19992000 season, Potvin, a 2nd round, and 3rd round draft pick were traded to the Vancouver Canucks for Kevin Weekes, Dave Scatchard and Bill Muckalt. Potvin struggled with the Canucks and in the 20002001 season he was dealt to the Los Angeles Kings for future considerations. Immediately, Potvin made an impact in a Kings uniform. He led the Kings to the 7th seed, recording 13 wins and 5 losses, and a remarkable 1.96 GAA and a .919 save %. Potvin led the Kings to a first-round upset of the Detroit Red Wings, and pushed the eventual Stanley Cup Champions, the Colorado Avalanche, to a 7th game, recording 2 shutouts in that series.
Potvin again led the Kings to the 2002 playoffs, where they pushed the Colorado Avalanche to seven games in the 1st round.
In September 2003, Potvin was signed to a 1-year contract by the Boston Bruins. He backed-up Calder Trophy Winner Andrew Raycroft during the 200304 season. Coincidentally, Raycroft broke Potvin's record for consecutive games played by a Maple Leafs goalie during the 200607 season
