Chris Osgood is a Canadian goalie on the Detroit Red Wings.

Osgood was drafted by Detroit in 1991, and made his first start in 1993. Detroit had multiple goalies at the time, but Osgood proved himself and was named the starter for the playoffs. In 1994, Detroit acquired Mike Vernon, who was named the starter. Osgood was his backup at first, but won the starting role for the 1995-96 season, leading the NHL with 39 wins. He scored an empty net goal that season, making him only the second goalie to shoot and score in a game.

In 1997, Osgood was again Vernon
