Eric Semborski (born June 1, 1993) is an American ice hockey player who served as an emergency goaltender for the Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers during the 2016–17 NHL season. He was substituted onto the ice, but the move was disallowed by the referee because the primary goalie was not injured.
