Top 10 - Backups in Habs history
Jose Theodore

Jose Theodore was a revelation in his rookie campaign, backing up Jeff Hackett to a 12-13-2 record. His win percentage may not have netted him many accolades, but with five shutouts, a 2.10 goals-against average and a .919 save percentage in 30 games, Theodore cemented his place in the Canadiens’ lineup – and earned the starting job the next season.
