Barrasso to retire as a Penguin

ESPN.com news services

Tom Barrasso, who was recently released by the St. Louis Blues, will sign a contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins this week and retire, a source close to Barrasso told ESPN's Darren Pang.

Barrasso spent 12 seasons in Pittsburgh and guided the Penguins to back-to-back Stanley Cup titles in 1991 and 1992.

The fifth overall pick by Buffalo in the 1983 draft, Barrasso had an amazing first season, winning both the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie and the Vezina Trophy. Barrasso was 26-12-3 with a 2.22 goals-against average for the Sabres.

For his career, Barrasso is 369-277-86 with a 3.24 goals-against average. Barrasso appeared in six games this season for the Blues, going 1-4 with a 3.28 goals-against average.
