Nathan Marsters (January 28, 1980 – June 8, 2009[1]) was a professional ice hockey goaltender.

Career[edit]

Marsters was initially drafted by the Los Angeles Kings 165th overall in the 2000 NHL entry draft but signed as a free agent by the Anaheim Ducks in November 2005. He never appeared in a game with the Ducks, but was recalled by the Ducks on April 21, 2006 after starting goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere sustaining an injury in practice several days earlier. Backup goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov started in Giguere's place, and Marsters assumed the role of backup goaltender against the Flames during game one of the 2006 Western Conference Quarterfinals.[2]

Marsters played primarily in the AHL and ECHL, but also briefly played with the Central Hockey League's Laredo Bucks in 2006, Germany's Deutsche Eishockey Liga with the Krefeld Pinguine, and in the Erste Bank Eishockey Liga with Graz 99ers (both in 2007) before retiring in 2008.

Nathan Marsters played college hockey at Rensselaer, during which he gained national attention as a figure in the Proposition 65–1 debate.

Marsters was killed in an automobile accident in West Lincoln, Ontario, on June 8, 2009, when a deer crashed through the windshield of his truck. He is survived by his wife Olivia.[1][3]
