From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Robert John "Golden Boy" Goldham (May 12, 1922 in Georgetown, Ontario – November 6, 1991) is a retired Canadian ice hockey defenceman. He was called the "Second Goalie" because he would throw himself in front of the puck.

Goldham started his National Hockey League career with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1941. He would also play for the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Black Hawks and would retire after the 1956 season. In 1955, he was a member of the NHL All-Star Team and won five Stanley Cups in his career in 1942, and 1947 with Toronto and 1952, 1954, and 1955 with Detroit.

After retiring, he worked for several years as a television analyst on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada and on the local midweek Toronto Maple Leaf broadcasts on CHCH channel 11.

Bob was married to Eleanor, and had three daughters, Pat, Barbara and Susan.
