Jason LaBarbera(1) Norfolk Admirals

Jason Labarbera215 year veteran goaltender Jason LaBarbera(1) has always been a highly sought after NHL back up between the pipes.

Due to his role on a team he’s only play 182 games in the league with 45 of those coming in a single season as a starter, when he was property of Los Angeles Kings.

The big 6’3″ 232 lbs. net minder consistently puts up decent numbers when called upon.

He has similar stats through 282 AHL games, where he’ll likely play most of the time in 2014/2015.

He’s basically won best goalie in the league honors in three of his campaigns, twice early in his career with Hartford Wolf Pack and once during a lockout with Manchester Monarchs.

Signed to a 1-year, two-way contract with Anaheim Ducks, he’s on reassignment with minor league affiliate Norfolk Admirals.

The 34-year old will likely get the call to put his talents on display for a few games with the parent club but was essentially given a contract to serve as a valuable mentor for their stable of talented prospects.

He was originally a New York Rangers‘ 3rd round pick in the 1998 draft (#66 overall).
