The Phoenix Coyotes signed 31-year-old bank manager Nathan Schoenfeld as a backup goalie Monday night.
The regular backup Anders Lindback suffered an off-ice injury only hours before the game against the Montreal Canadians, and the Coyotes had no choice but to reach out to Schoenfeld, according to Deadspin. (SLIDESHOW: This NHL Player’s Girlfriend Is A Sexy Model Almost Too Hot To Handle)

Schoenfeld wasn’t called on to enter the game which is probably a good thing because he hasn’t played a competitive game of hockey since 2006 for the Arizona State club team according to AZ Central. (VIDEO: Celebrate The Two-Year Anniversary Of TJ Oshie’s Olympic Heroics Against Russia)
