He led league goaltenders in shutouts seven times over his professional career. He is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.Benedict was one of the first great goalies in professional hockey and a great innovator in the sport. He was the first goalie to drop to his knees to stop the puck along the ice, at the time, dropping to the ice was illegal. This earned him the nickname Praying Benny.
