David Ayres

David Ayres, a Canadian Zamboni driver turned NHL goaltender, captured the hearts of hockey fans around the world with his remarkable story of determination and triumph. Born on August 12, 1977, Ayres became an overnight sensation when he made his unexpected debut as an emergency backup goaltender for the Carolina Hurricanes in a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on February 22, 2020.


Prior to his extraordinary NHL appearance, Ayres served as a Zamboni driver and practice goalie for the Toronto Marlies, the AHL affiliate of the Maple Leafs. When both of the Hurricanes’ goaltenders were injured during the game, Ayres was called into action and made eight saves to secure a historic win.


His Cinderella-like story resonated with sports enthusiasts, showcasing the power of perseverance and the unexpected twists of fate in professional sports. Ayres’ moment in the spotlight solidified his status as a beloved and inspirational figure in the hockey community.
