Barry Brust allowed just one goal on 40 shots and secured a 2-1 shootout victory for the Abbotsford Heat on Saturday night.

Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province thinks that the Vancouver Canucks could be interested in unrestricted free agent Barry Brust once the lockout is over.

Using the assumption that Roberto Luongo will be traded and Cory Schneider will become the Canucks top netminder, Vancouver will be in line for a backup goaltender and at 29, Brust could be a perfect match, both in quality and for salary cap reasons. Brust has been sensational this season in the AHL as he leads netminders with a 1.12 GAA and a .951 save percentage for the league-leading Abbotsford Heat to go with a 7-1-0 record. The 29-year-old could get a nice NHL contract out of this start.

Barry Brust is modest when talking about his ongoing shutout streak of 231 minutes and 41 seconds with the AHL Abbotsford Heat.

"To be honest, it’s just the luck of the draw," Brust said. "The games I’ve gotten have been relatively easy." Brust went onto say that he doesn't believe the shutouts are "a product of my play." Regardless, you literally can't get much better than a 0.25 GAA and .991 save percentage after four starts. That being said, even if the lockout ends, the odds have Brust playing in the NHL this season are remote.

Barry Brust produced a 29-save shutout as Abbotsford blanked Lake Erie 2-0 on Wednesday.

Brust hasn't appeared in many games this season - Danny Taylor has played seven games to Brust's four - but the former third-round pick has made the most of his opportunities. He already has three shutouts this season, allowing just a single goal so far.

Barry Brust has been excellent for Ottawa's AHL affiliate in Binghamton this season.

He was brought on board to play in the ECHL for the Elmira Jackals, but injuries and call-ups to the NHL handed him the starting gig for the Baby Senators. Brust has proved his worth with a 24-13-1 record, a 2.50 goals-against average, a .927 save percentage and six shutouts. However, with Robin Lehner back in the minors it will be interesting to see how they split time in the crease for the remainder of the year. Brust has appeared in just 11 games in his NHL career after being selected by the Minnesota Wild 73rd overall in the 2002 draft. Just in case you were wondering why the big club didn't bring him up this year it is because he is on an AHL deal and cannot be recalled.

Barry Brust has re-signed with the Wild on a multi-year deal.

Barry Brust was pulled once again in the Kings' 3-1 loss to the Blues on Thursday.

Barry Brust is set to shoulder the load in Los Angeles.

Dan Cloutier is likely out for the season after having hip surgery and Mathieu Garon is on the injured list after hurting his finger. Brust is expected to start on Saturday versus the Blues and the recently called up, Yutaka Fukufuji will be his backup.

Barry Brust is the probable starter on Friday for the Kings.

The Kings will not overwork their number one starter Mathieu Garon as he returns from a groin injury, so Brust will probably get the start on Friday. Brust has played well in limited duty this season, which bodes well for his future.

Barry Brust looked like a seasoned veteran on Tuesday as he stopped 28 of 31 shots in a 4-3 shootout victory over Phoenix.

Brust looked even better in the shootout as he stopped all three Coyote shooters. Coach Marc Crawford decided to go with Brust as starter Dan Cloutier has struggled of late. Look for Crawford to go back to the rookie in their next game as he showed poise and confidence between the pipes tonight.
