Hurricanes name Tom Barrasso director of goaltender development

The Carolina Hurricanes named the former all-star netminder director of goaltender development Friday, a role that will see the 42-year-old Barrasso work with all of the goalies in the team's minor-league system.

"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," Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said in a statement. "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 retired from hockey in 2003 after an 18-year NHL career. He was 369-277-86 with a 3.24 goals-against average and 38 shutouts with Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Ottawa, Carolina, Toronto and St. Louis. He captured two Stanley Cups with the Penguins in 1991 and '92.
