Abstract (Document Summary)

Moog's record over 14 seasons is 299-143-62 (with 18 shutouts) in 540 games played. Only Jacques Plante reached the 300-win mark quicker than Moog will. Plante reached the milestone in 526 games.

Moog, 34, will soon be in good company. Eight of the nine goalies to reach 300 victories are in the Hockey Hall of Fame: Terry Sawchuk (435 wins), Plante (434), [Tony] Esposito (423), Glenn Hall (407), Gump Worsley (335), Harry Lumley (332), Billy Smith (305) and Turk Broda (302).

Moog, a native of Penticton, British Columbia, was taken in the sixth round of the 1980 entry draft by the Edmonton Oilers, where he teamed with Grant Fuhr to form one of the best-ever goaltending tandems. Moog left for Boston with three Stanley Cup championships. He helped lead the Bruins to the final twice. Now he's in Dallas, after a trade that sent Jon Casey to Boston.
