Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Doug Barrault
Doug Barrault played in the last season of major-league hockey in one city, Minnesota, and in the first year of NHL action for another franchise, the Florida Panthers. This right-winger was given two short shots at the big time — two games each with the North Stars and Panthers.

Barrault was drafted 155th overall by Minnesota in 1990 and after two years of seasoning made his brief debut with the North Stars in ‘92-’93. Claimed by Florida that summer in the Expansion Draft, he again played briefly in the NHL but mostly in the minors.

He was a skilled penalty killer and led the IHL in shorthanded goals in 1993-94. Injuries slowed down his development as a minor pro, though he was a reserve with the United States’ entry at the World Championships in 1998, his last year of professional hockey.
