Tom Barrasso Named Director of Goalie Development

Two-time Stanley Cup winner to work with Hurricanes’ drafted goaltenders

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has hired former Hurricanes netminder Tom Barrasso as its Director of Goaltender Development. In his new role, Barrasso will work with all of the goaltenders in the team’s system who are not currently in the NHL, including players with Albany (American Hockey League), Florida (ECHL) and various junior hockey clubs.

“Tom brings instant credibility to his new position, and is somebody that the goaltenders in our system will be able to respect and learn from,” said Rutherford. “He has re-located his family to Raleigh and we are happy that he has chosen to continue his life in hockey with our organization.”

Barrasso, 42, retired from hockey in 2003 after an 18-year NHL career, during which he played for the Buffalo Sabres, Pittsburgh Penguins, Ottawa Senators, Carolina Hurricanes, Toronto Maple Leafs and St. Louis Blues. The Boston native compiled a career regular-season record of 369-277-86, with a goals-against average of 3.24 and 38 shutouts in 777 career NHL games. Barrasso ranks 13th all-time in NHL wins with 369, and in 1997 became the first American-born goaltender to reach 300 wins. He was 61-54 with a 3.01 goals-against average and six shutouts in 119 career playoff games, leading Pittsburgh to a pair of Stanley Cup championships in 1991 and 1992.

Barrasso was originally drafted fifth overall by the Buffalo Sabres out of Acton-Boxborough High School in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft, at the time the highest a goaltender had ever been picked in an NHL draft. He made his NHL debut with the Sabres straight out of high school the following season, going 26-12-3 with a 2.84 goals-against average to win the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s rookie of the year and the Vezina Trophy as the league’s top netminder. Barrasso went on to earn NHL Second All-Star Team honors in 1985 and 1993 and shared the Williams Jennings Trophy (lowest team goals-against average) in 1985 with Bob Sauve. He played in the 1985 NHL All-Star Game and represented the United States at the 1984 Canada Cup, 1987 Canada Cup and 1986 IIHF World Championship. In 2002, after an outstanding start with the Carolina Hurricanes, he was named to the United States Olympic team for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, where he earned a silver medal.
