    Imagine a guy getting dual positions: goalie with any skater spot in a league counting points by goalies. That's an off-night bonanza.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G:Jarry
    Backup G: Shesterkin
    D: Carlson, Fox, Makar, M Reilly, Letang, Marino,
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, Guentzel
    F4: Tavares, JT Miller, Pearson

    Bench:
    G: F Andersen
    D: DeAngelo, Heiskanen, Klingberg, Pionk, Ekblad
    F: Benn, Seguin, Gurianov, Necas, Bertuzzi, Eriksson Ek
    Reserve: Datsyuk

    I was really looking forward to trolling all my Leaf fan friends this morning... but given the beat down my Bruins suffered last night, I guess I’ll bite my tongue.

    Great story though, has to be a highlight of Ayers life for sure!

    Am I missing something though? How did he get the win? They were up 4-1 when he came in and they won 6-3....

    They were up 3-1 and scored the fourth goal right after he entered the game.

    Turns out the Leafs didn't even have to trade for Jack Campbell. They had their guy in house all along!

    On a serious note, they've apparently sold over 1000 of his shirts with a portion of the proceeds going to the kidney foundation. Ayres needed a kidney transplant back in 2004, which he received from his mother.

    The Canes are flying him in to their next home game next week to sound their siren as well.

    How can you beat this story. Good for him.
    10 Team, Points Only, Cash League

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Man this story is awesome. Some more fun facts:
    -Ayers is the first ever Emergency Goalie to earn an NHL win!
    -Apparently the Canes were having a fit after they learned the emergency goalie was a Leafs employee. In-between the 2nd and 3rd periods they were apparently asking if they could sign someone else?!?
    -Rob Brindamour's post game speech was something special.
