The opinionated hockey YouTube channel “idontgivetkachuk” recently featured Duluth native Robb Stauber in an eight-and-a-half minute video tribute/critique. Slicing together some of the former goaltender’s crazier plays, video creator Paul DeRienzo presents Stauber as a wild and perhaps undisciplined goalie who lived outside the crease.
In less than two weeks the video has generated more than 100,000 views.
Stauber, a standout at Denfeld High School, won the Hobey Baker Award in 1988 for his play with the Minnesota Gophers. He played in the National Hockey League for the Los Angeles Kings and Buffalo Sabres between 1989 and ’95.
He served as goalie coach for the Gophers when the team won back-to-back NCAA National Titles in 2002 and 2003, and also was head coach of the USA Hockey Women’s National Team when it won a gold medal in 2018.
