Worst NHL Goalies of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Frank Brophy

Reason Why He Sucks: He played when there was no forward passing allowed, and he had 21 games to do well, and he got a GAA of 7.11. - booklover1

2 Terrance Richardson
3 Bert Lindsay

Reason Why He Sucks: Same reason as Brophy, except he had a better GAA. - booklover1

4 Scott Gordon
5 Vesa Toskala

Even though I'm a leafs fan he was doo doo

He can't even catch the puck and made an own goal from center ice

He gave up 6 goals from center ice or farther

He had a save percentage of 744

6 Don McLeod

Ol' Club Foot Smokey

7 Jarmo Myllys
8 Gordon Laxton
9 Bob Champoux
10 Ken McAuley


McAuley was involved in a 15-0 loss to Detroit. While he may have been good on the battlefield, he wasn't so good on the ice rink. - Canuck101

The Contenders

11 Howard Lockhart
12 José Theodore

Come on! He is terrible! If it wasn't because of the offense of when he played in Montreal, Colorado, Washington, Minnesota and Florida, he wouldn't even be still in the NHL! He is so bad, cristobal huet is so much better!

After the 2004-05 lockout, the NHL put limiations on the size of goalie equipment, this is when Theodore's career started going downhill, but the last few years before the lockout, he was right up there with the best.

13 Henrik Lundqvist Henrik Lundqvist Henrik Lundqvist is a Swedish professional ice hockey goaltender for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League.

Stop the puck

Whenever a player goes topshelf all he does is sit and spread his legs he's a failure

I agree just speads his legs and fails besides he can't be the king if he flips over the net every game

14 Martin Brodeur

What?!? How is he on here best g ever and that's not because I'm a fan he has the most wins!

15 Ilya Bryzgalov

He can't save anything

It's only a game. Why you heff to be mad?

16 Andre Racicot

With a name like, "Red Light" how'd you not see him on the list earlier?! 68 NHL games and never had a season with a save percentage over 9! He played for 20 pro teams, which cries no one wanted him for long. - cws480

17 Mike Condon
18 Steve Mason

As a die-hard Flyers fan he just flat-out sucks. - manningfan23

So horrible - Tvshowcritic

As a Winnipeg Jets Fan This Guy Sucks

19 Matt Murray Matt Murray

Take him of this list he is not a bad goalie. - CRK10

20 Cam Talbot

Now he on the flames :-(, hopefully flames won't do bad after a good season last year - trains45

He was disappointing in 2018 2019, seemed to let in too many pucks and cost oilers to lose before he got traded - trains45

Yes he got traded from oilers to flyers

This goalie sucks, almost every time oilers use him I see the other team score a lot, seen him let the other teams blow too many leads this season and tonight as well agenest the blackwalks and hurrcaines a few weeks ago, and to blue jackets in march last year

21 Evgeni Nabokov

HOW? He is the best Russian goalie of all-time!

22 Jon Casey
23 Robin Lehner

calm down!

24 Steve Buzinski

He's called the Puck goes in ski for a reason

25 Andrew Raycroft

He was a bad goalie when he played for toronto

26 Johan Hedberg

Atlanta Thrashers vs Buffalo Sabres
