Carl Wetzel had a decorated international hockey career as a goaltender for Team USA. He appeared in only 7 NHL games -- two for his hometown Detroit Red Wings in 1964-65 and five for the North Stars during their inaugural 1967-68 season. In both of those seasons he was the only US-born goalie to appear in an NHL game. Five years later, Carl resurfaced for one game with the Fighting Saints of the upstart WHA. He's a wonderful man who is now the gatekeeper of the NHL Alumni Lounge at the Xcel Energy Center.
