Tom Barrasso Grows Up

They say the problem with child prodigies is that they’re not children forever.
No one understands that better than new St. Louis goaltender Tom Barrasso. In the NHL as a teen, he’s now just a 37-year-old man looking for a place to punch his time card.
He’s a goalie without a team &#151 sort of a gun-for-hire in the NHL.
The Post-Dispatch has a nice piece on the goalie who jumped from high school to the NHL.
St. Louis went from having no goaltenders to having a plethora. Goalie Fred Brathwaite stopped 19 shots to shut out the misnamed Predators 7-0. Brathwaite also had the quote of the game: “No problems with the groin.”
Keep us posted, Fred!
