Lost Cards: 1982-83 Glen Hanlon

  I will forever remember Glen Hanlon for his oddly shaped helmet, even more so than his crotch grab card, which I pulled out of a pack as a child.  One thing that many may not remember is Hanlon's time with the Blues.  Acquired from the Canucks at the 1982 trade deadline, the Blues had hoped Hanlon would provide support for starting goalie, and All-Star, Mike Liut.  Instead Hanlon quickly played his way out of St. louis, beginning with surrendering seven goals in his Blues Debut vs the Winnipeg Jets.  Hanlon was traded to the New York Rangers during the 1982-83 season.  Hanlon faired much better with the Rangers, and then Detroit Red Wings, where he led the league in Shutouts with 4 in 1987-88.  Hanlon retired from the NHL after being left unprotected and then passed over in the 1991 expansion draft.
