Massachusetts Native Tom Barrasso Became NHL’s Youngest Vezina Trophy Winner at Age 18 in 1984

Tim Thomas has collected two Vezina Trophies in the last three years. But at age 37, he's far from the youngest to ever bring home the award. That honor belongs to Tom Barrasso.

Barrasso, a native of Stow, Mass., won the Vezina Trophy at age 18 in 1984 as a member of the Buffalo Sabres. He compiled a 26-12-3 record, along with a 2.84 goals against average, and also received the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie. By doing so, he became the third player to win both awards in the same season.

Barrasso debuted with the Sabres on Oct. 5, 1983, at which point he became the youngest goalie to play in and win a game since Harry Lumley nearly 40 years before. In fact, he had been out of high school for less than six months at the time.

For a select amount of Bruins games this season, NESN and The Four's will be teaming up to offer B's fans the chance at winning a $50 gift card to The Four's Restaurant and Sports Bar by simply answering a trivia question found at NESN.com/thefours. Questions will be posted at noon every afternoon on the day of a Bruins home game, unless otherwise noted.
