Team USA calls for Snow in goal vs. Slovakia LILLEHAMMER '94

February 15, 1994|By Bill Glauber

LILLEHAMMER, Norway -- There's a new candidate to wear the goalie cam.

Garth Snow was chosen to start in goal for the U.S. Olympic hockey team for its game tonight against Slovakia in Ghovik Cavern Hall.

The only question remaining before game time is this: Will he wear the goalie cam that CBS-TV has rigged up to place on his mask?

"I'm ready and excited about having the chance to start," said Snow, 24, of Wrentham, Mass.

He replaced Mike Dunham, who stopped just 10 of 14 shots in Team USA's near-disastrous 4-4 tie with France in the Olympic opener.

"We've said all along that we have a strong goaltending tandem in Mike Dunham and Garth Snow, and we've said all along that both players would contribute," said Team USA coach Tim Taylor.

Snow played four seasons at the University of Maine, where he roomed with Dunham. His NHL rights are held by the Quebec Nordiques.

He posted a 13-5-3 record with a 3.22 goals-against average during the 1993-94 pre-Olympic tour. He also was 11-1-3 in his past 15 starts.
