Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jason Muzzatti
Jason Muzzatti was born February 3, 1970 in Toronto, Ontario. The 1st choice, 21st overall selection of the Calgary Flames, Muzzatti is a graduate of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association's Michigan State Spartans.

The Toronto, Ontario native spent four years as the number one goaltender at Michigan State where he was a CCHA Second Team All-Star in 1988, a CCHA First Team All-Star and a NCAA West Second Team All-American in 1990 before making his professional debut with Calgary's IHL affiliate in Salt Lake in 1991-92.

Muzzatti's 1992-93 season was shared with Salt Lake, the IHL's Indianapolis Ice and Canada's National Team before making his NHL debut with the Flames the following year. Although he spent the majority of the 1993-94 season with the Flames AHL affiliate in Saint John, Muzzatti played his first NHL game with the Flames before returning to Saint John in 1994-95.

After being recalled by the Flames during the 1994-95 season, Muzzatti was claimed off waivers by the Hartford Whalers at the beginning of the 1995-96 season. Muzzatti spent the better part of the season with Hartford, playing in 22 games, while only playing a handful of games with the team's AHL affiliate in Springfield.

Backing up Sean Burke for the 1996-97 season, Muzzatti played in a career high 31 games with Hartford before having his rights transferred to the Carolina Hurricanes after the Hartford franchise relocated during the off-season. Shortly after the franchise relocated, Muzzatti was traded to the New York Rangers, where he spent the majority of the 1997-98 season with the Rangers AHL team in Hartford, while only playing a handful of games with the Rangers.

Towards the end of the 1997-98 campaign, Muzzatti was about to join his third NHL team. The Rangers traded Muzzatti to the San Jose Sharks where he spent the remainder of the regular season with the team's AHL affiliate in Kentucky, while playing in one game with the Sharks.

In 1998-99, Muzzatti headed to Europe where he has spent the past three years with stops in Germany and Finland.
