Bio

Ed Giacomin Bio

Giacomin was a late bloomer. He began his pro hockey career in 1959, played five seasons with Providence of the American Hockey League and didn't play his first NHL game until Oct. 24, 1965, more than four months after his 26th birthday.

It looked like the native of Sudbury, Ontario, might be a career minor leaguer until the New York Rangers traded four players to Providence for Giacomin on May 18, 1965. However, the new goalie was anything but an instant success, going 8-20 with six ties for a last-place team in 1965-66 and struggling badly enough to be demoted to the AHL for seven games.
