Alexis Gravel isn’t marquee goalie of Memorial Cup (but he’ll be fun to watch anyway)

Any goaltender who makes it to the Memorial Cup deserves a round of applause; it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the majority of players who make it and a memory that few get the honor of making.

Still, there’s always a goaltender or two at the Memorial Cup who gets heralded as the player to watch.
