"Christopher John Osgood" is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender. He is currently ranked tenth in wins in NHL regular season history with 401. Osgood spent the first part of his 17-year NHL career with the Detroit Red Wings, then the New York Islanders and the St. Louis Blues before returning to Detroit in 2005. He won three Stanley Cup championships in his career, all with the Red Wings, with two of them coming while he was starting goaltender. Osgood was known in Detroit by his nicknames "Ozzie," chanted by the crowd after a big save, and "The Wizard of Oz." Osgood is currently a Detroit Red Wings studio analyst for Fox Sports Detroit.

He was the last NHL goalie to wear a traditional Goalie mask#Helmet cage combination/player's helmet/cage combo instead of the newer one piece Goalie mask#Full fiberglass/goalie mask as he was grandfathered by the NHL, until Rick DiPietro briefly wore one in 2011 with a cage that Osgood actually used to wear, after DiPietro was injured in a fight with Brent Johnson. He is also one of only List of goaltenders who have scored a goal in an NHL game/eleven goaltenders in NHL history to have scored a goal, and one of only six to have scored by shooting the puck directly into the opponent's net (not an "own goal"), on March 6, 1996 vs. the Hartford Whalers.
