Chatham’s Jason Missiaen had a front row seat for the Stanley Cup playoffs. The behemoth goaltender was recalled as the New York Rangers’ third goalie, and watched the entire Stanley Cup final from the press box.

Unfortunately for Missiaen, and the New York Rangers, the Los Angeles Kings would dominate the Final, capturing the Cup in five games.

Missiaen was recalled after New York’s regular backup, Cam Talbot went down with an injury.

It is unknown whether Missiaen would have been invited onto the ice for the Cup celebration had the Rangers won, which is often the case for players practicing and travelling with Cup winning teams in the playoffs.

This season, Missiaen struggled with the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack, going 2-11 with a 3.83 goals against average and 0.864 save percentage before being sent down to the ECHL’s Greenville Road Warriors, where he collected a 14-6 record, 2.76 goals against average, and .919 save percentage.
