LAKE PLACID - Everyone knows goalie Stanley Rumbough at the Miracle on Ice Fantasy Camp, not just because he's the oldest, but because he gained a reputation as a save king in the net.

Rumbough, 71, of Greenwich, Connecticut, attended his fifth fantasy camp from March 31 to April 3 at the Olympic Center. He holds the record for the number of shutout periods - eight over the first and second seasons of camp. He even shut out 1980 Olympian John Harrington's team in two games during the inaugural season. Therefore, it was only fitting that the gold medalist return the favor.

"John Harrington broke my shutout record," Rumbough said.

Harrington and Rumbough even talk to each other on their shared birthday, May 24. Harrington is 10 years younger.

Editor Andy Flynn sat down with Rumbough behind the scenes at the Olympic Center on April 2 to learn more about his life, including how he started playing hockey and why he continues to play in his early 70s.
