Bruce Hoffort

Bruce Hoffort played goal for the Hershey Bears in the late 1980's and early 1990's. In theory, his AHL career never matched his NHL career. Hoffort played nine games for the Philadelphia Flyers and never lost a single one. Four wins, three ties and zero losses. Hard to believe Hoffort never got another chance to lose a game in the NHL. In 58 games for the Bears, Hoffort lost 30 to go along with 19 wins.
Hoffort's biggest moments came playing for the Lake Superior State Lakers where he was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award and in the late 1980's one of the best college goaltenders, if not the best.
