A former 2nd round pick of the Vancouver Canucks, Mike Fountain played in three games for the Carolina Hurricanes after signing as a free agent in August of 1997. In a season that saw the Hurricanes use five goalies, Fountain arguably performed the worst in his small sample:
Fountain spent the entirety of the following season in the AHL before signing with the Ottawa Senators in the summer of 1999. He appeared in two games over two seasons in Ottawa, spending the majority of his time in the IHL.
After the conclusion of his NHL career, Fountain spent seven seasons playing in both Russia and Germany, augmented by a brief stint with the Motor City Mechanics of the USHL. He spent part of his post-playing career as the goaltending coach of the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the USHL.
Reflections: Yet another “here today, gone tomorrow” goalie. Also, I always thought his mask looked like it was designed in MS Paint.
