Curtis Joseph

Curtis Joseph behind the mask for the [[Toronto Maple Leafs]]. Curtis Shayne "Cujo" Joseph (né Munro; April 29, 1967) is a Canadian ice hockey coach and former professional player. He last played for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League during the 2008–09 NHL season.

Joseph is immediately recognizable on the ice for his masks featuring a snarling dog, drawing inspiration from the Stephen King novel ''Cujo'', which also happens to be his nickname, derived from the first two letters of his first and last names. Throughout his NHL career, Joseph played for a number of franchises, rising to prominence during the playoffs with the St. Louis Blues, Edmonton Oilers, and Toronto Maple Leafs. He also played for the Detroit Red Wings, Phoenix Coyotes and Calgary Flames. He was also a member of Canada's gold medal winning team at the 2002 Winter Olympics.

Joseph retired with the most career wins (454) of any goaltender in NHL history who never played on a Stanley Cup-winning team (which has since been surpassed by Roberto Luongo), and was also the first goaltender to have 30 or more wins in a regular season for five different teams.
