Tom Barrasso named to USA Hockey Hall of Fame


Congrats to former Pittsburgh Penguin goalie Tom Barrasso for the announcement that he's been named to the USA Hockey Hall of Fame.  Also honored John LeClair, who finished his career in Pittsburgh.

The 1998 U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team, Tony Amonte, Tom Barrasso, John LeClair and Frank Zamboni will be enshrined into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame as the Class of 2009, it was announced today by USA Hockey.

Barrasso's attitude and personality has made him a polarizing figure, but congrats to him just the same, without his contributions the high-flying Penguins wouldn't have won the two Stanley Cups that the did back in the early '90s.  LeClair may best be known be Penguin fans, unfortunately, as the guy who collided with Evgeni Malkin in training camp, delaying the debut of the young Russian in his rookie season.
