Shutout is a term primarily used in ice hockey when a goalkeeper has not conceded a goal in a game . This is a significant achievement for an ice hockey goalkeeper as the shutouts appear in the statistics as well. As such, a shutout is only counted if the goalkeeper has been on the ice for the entire game. If the goalkeeper was changed during the game, the shutout counts as a team shutout, but does not appear in the individual statistics of the two players. If a game ends 0-0, the goalkeepers of both teams receive a shutout. In leagues where a penalty shoot-out is played in the event of a tie, the goalkeeper of the winning team is usually awarded a shutout in the event of a 0-0 draw after regular time (even if he allows goals against in the penalty shoot-out). The goalkeeper of the losing team loses his shutout. The record with the most career shutouts in the NHL held until December 21, 2009 Terry Sawchuk with 103 shutouts between 1951 and 1970, before Martin Brodeur surpassed him with the 104th shutout of his career and is now the record holder. Third is George Hainsworth with 94 shutouts.

Similar to ice hockey, the shutout is used in the related sport of floorball when the goalkeeper has not conceded a goal.

The term shutout is also used in other sports, such as B. used in baseball when a team does not allow the opponent to run a single run (and thus gain points). The same applies to American and Canadian football . From there, the term shutout found its way into American football very early, although it has a similar or almost the same meaning as in ice hockey.
