Decision – Wins, Losses, Ties
From 1969-70 through 1978-79, the goalkeepers’ records did not include wins, losses and ties.
It is only in the 1979-80 season that the QMJHL begins to take into account decisions in a game. The goalkeeper on the ice at the time the deciding goal is goal is credited of the decision.
Minutes of play and Goals against average
From 1969-70 through 1973-74, the time on ice for goalkeepers was not indicated in minutes and seconds as is the case nowadays. Therefore, the precision of ‘Goals against Average’ was not as precise as it is now.
Only the percentage of the value of the game played was calculated. For example and based on three periods of play, a 1/3 of a game was indicated for a goalkeeper who only played the 1st period, or ½ game for a goalkeeper pulled mid-way through the game.
On the other hand and following the data entry of all available information on the scoresheets from that time, we have been able to determine more precisely the real number of minutes played by each goalkeeper. Hence, the goalkeepers’ statistics that can be viewed in this section may differ slightly from the reality that existed at the time, mainly in the fields of “Games Played”, “Minutes Played” and “Goals against Average”. We also took the opportunity to correct some typing errors that existed in typed documents, this with the help of computers giving a more precise result.
