In the NHL, if a team’s starting and backup goalie are injured during a game, rule 5.3 allows almost anybody to suit up in net as a replacement (including from the crowd). Examples have included a team video producer and an embroidery shop owner (who dressed but did not play). 

In 1944 1928, Lester Patrick became the oldest person to ever play in an NHL playoff game when he had to fill in as his team’s goaltender.

At the time, it was common for teams to only have one goaltender on the roster. The goaltender for the New York Rangers was injured during the second period of a game in the Stanley Cup Finals, so Patrick, the team’s coach suited up to play goaltender.

The coach of Pittsburgh’s hockey team at the time (the Pirates, I think?) was in attendance and came down to coach the Rangers for the rest of the game. He instructed the defense to check hard at the blue line and try to only allow long shots from the opposing team to help Patrick in net.

Lester Patrick allowed one goal. The Rangers won the game and would go on to win the Stanley Cup.
