Let's start with Cory Crawford! The first thing I noticed when I started my research was Crawford was born on December 31st 1984. The New Year's Eve baby has really made a name for himself in the NHL. Drafted by Chicago in the 2nd round in 2003, Crawford has spent his entire pro career with the Blackhawks organization.
Crawford wears the number 50, stands 6'2" and weights just over 200 pounds. Basically Crawford is that guy you want to take home to Mum. Another little fun fact about Crawford; he comes from Montreal, Quebec which means he can speak french which is the language of romance which means Crawford can whisper you sweet nothings in the most romantic language on the planet!
This year Crawford has won 11 of the 14 games he has played. Allowing only 21 goals and stopping a whooping 352 others! In total Crawford has played 136 games in the NHL and has won 75 and only lost 38, with an .913 save percentage. Which means Crawford stops over 9 out of 10 shots on net that comes his way.
Mr.Crawford I am so happy to make you a Fantasy Friday! Keep up the good work Bud!
Emery was drafted by the Ottawa Senators, 4th round in 2001. Emery played 5 seasons with the Senators before brief stints in Philadelphia and Anaheim. Finally on October 3rd 2011 Emery signed as a free agent with the Blackhawks.
Emery hails from Hamilton, Ontario and it is save to say coming from a city like that hockey is just in his blood. Emery wears number 30, stand 6'2" like Crawford and weights about 200 pounds. You can see with Crawford and Emery's height and weight they can both cover a lot of space in front of the net and make it next to impossible for players to score. Ermey has won 10 of his 11 games this year. Allowing only 22 goals, stopping 292 other shots on net and his save percentage is .925 meaning Emery stopped over 9 out of 10 shots that have come his way this season.
If you do ever bump into Emery off the ice his nick names are Razor and Sugar Ray. The tattooed net minder also has a flare for fashion that is well know within the league. Either way you slice it Emery is just a dream boat! Thank you Chicago for not only signing a great goalie but a handsome one!
