    As to the existence of the back-up goalie having a jersey with his name on it, I have a guess. These jerseys are a great source of fundraising potential. “ Game worn” jerseys are in demand at these auction or raffles. The star players can get a lot and the scarcity is such that even the back-up goaltender fetches a bid at over cost. It is, I assume in some leagues, the salary that the reserve goalie receives is a chest full of sweaters with their name on the back. I believe I saw a (Wes) Goldie Alaska Aces game warm go for around $2200?
