Elias on Ex-Isle Roloson


From Elias: Dwayne Roloson, who was traded to Tampa Bay by the Islanders on New
Year's Day, made his Lightning debut with a 1-0 overtime win at Washington on
Tuesday. It was the first shutout of the season for Roloson, who turned 41
years old in October. Roloson is only the third NHL goaltender in the last 33
seasons to post a shutout at age 41 or older, following Dominik Hasek, who had
13 shutouts after his 41st birthday (the last of which came at age 43 in March
2008), and Ed Belfour, with one at age 41 in February 2007.

Tampa Bay is the sixth different NHL team that Roloson has recorded shutouts
for; the others are Calgary (1), Buffalo (1), Minnesota (15), Edmonton (6) and
the Islanders (1). He's the third goaltender in league history to post
shutouts for six or more different teams, joining Sean Burke (7) and Lorne
Chabot (6).>>
