Playing career

Phil Myre Phil Myre on NHL Scouting and Technology39s Role TSS

Originally selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1966 NHL Entry Draft, Myre played parts of three seasons with the Canadiens. In 1970-71, because of an injury to Rogatien Vachon, he played 30 regular season games and dressed in 70. However, during the playoffs, the Canadiens went with rookie Ken Dryden. When Montreal won the Cup, Myre was included in the team picture and was given a Stanley Cup ring. However, his name was left off the Cup, even though he qualified, because he did not dress for any playoff games.

He was claimed by the Atlanta Flames in the 1972 NHL Expansion Draft, where he would play for almost six seasons. Although Myre began as the starting goaltender for the expansion club, he spent most of his time in Atlanta backing up Dan Bouchard. Myre would also play for the St. Louis Blues, Philadelphia Flyers, Colorado Rockies, and Buffalo Sabres.

The goaltending tandem of Myre and rookie Pete Peeters backstopped the Flyers to a 35-game undefeated streak during the 1979–80 NHL season, an NHL record. Myres saw some action in the playoffs that year, but Peeters played every minute in the Finals, in which the Flyers lost to the New York Islanders in six games.
