Damian Rhodes (born May 28, 1969 in St. Paul, Minnesota) is an American former professional ice hockey goaltender. Rhodes played from 1993 until 2002 in the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Rhodes was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 6th round of the 1987 Entry Draft, 112th overall. He played one game in the 1991–92 season, then served as backup from the 1993–94 season to 1995–96 before being traded in a three-way deal that sent Kirk Muller to the Maple Leafs, Martin Straka and Bryan Berard to the New York Islanders and Wade Redden along with Rhodes to the Ottawa Senators on January 23, 1996.[1]

Rhodes is also one of only eleven goaltenders to score a goal (Martin Brodeur has scored three goals, and Ron Hextall has scored two goals, each with one in the playoffs), managing the task without taking a shot. Rhodes was the last player to touch the puck on a delayed penalty call when Lyle Odelein of the New Jersey Devils inadvertently put the puck in his own goal with Martin Brodeur out of the net for an extra attacker in Ottawa's 6–0 victory on January 2, 1999.[2]

From 1996 to 1999, Rhodes split the goaltending duties with Ron Tugnutt. Tugnutt rose as the starter and therefore Ottawa traded Rhodes on June 18, 1999 in the offseason, to the Atlanta Thrashers for future considerations. He played his last game in the NHL for Atlanta in the 2001–02 season. Because of the depth of goalies in the Atlanta system, Rhodes was sent to Greenville, South Carolina to play for the Greenville Grrrowl of the ECHL. He would play 12 games for Greenville that season, going 2-8-2 and earning 1 shutout.

Personal life[edit]

In 2005, Rhodes married TV host Amanda Jahn. They have two children and reside in Cleveland, Ohio.
