Tragic update on Oilers legendary goaltender Andy Moog

Best wishes to the former Cup winner.



There is some unfortunate news out of the hockey world to be shared, as former Stanley Cup-winning goaltender Andy Moog has been diagnosed with cancer. 

The somber update was released by Mike Vaughn, the maker of the iconic goaltending equipment brand. 

“I received some very sad news yesterday. Our great friend of many years, Andy Moog, has cancer,” Vaughn wrote in the caption of an Instagram post on Thursday. “He has asked us to share the news with the hockey community that has meant so much to him over the years. We hope you can share your thoughts and well wishes as he begins the toughest battle of his career.”

“He is always looking to help others and now it is our turn to help him," Vaughn continued. “Please post your thoughts and well wishes for Andy and his family here and join us as we cheer him on for another victory!”

Moog suited up for the Edmonton Oilers, with whom he won the Stanley Cup a trio of times. He also would play for the Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, and Dallas Stars, as well as suiting up internationally for Canada. During the 1989–90 NHL season, he clinched the William M. Jennings Trophy for the team with the fewest total goals against in the regular season, sharing the honor with his goaltending partner, Reggie Lemelin.

Best wishes to Moog for a speedy recovery!
