28. Fred Brathwaite

2001-03; 55 games, 21-20-8 record, .891 save percentage, 2.51 GAA, 4 shutouts; 1 postseason game

Brathwaite, who was acquired from the Calgary Flames in 2001 in a package for fellow goalie Roman Turek, didn’t come close to reaching the level of success that the man he was traded for did in St. Louis. With that said, he did have a solid (though injury-riddled) first season with the St Louis Blues, amassing a 2.24 GAA, a .901 save percentage, and two shutouts through 25 games.

He gave way to Brent Johnson during the postseason that year, though he ended up playing six seconds in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

His numbers were also solid during the 2002-03 season, which he began as the starter. After dealing with injuries, however, he was limited to 30 games, during which he had a .883 save percentage and a 2.75 GAA.

Brathwaite, of course, also gets bonus points for his cameo in Jermaine Dupri’s 2002 “Welcome to Atlanta” music video, wearing his Blues jersey while appearing alongside Nelly, Murphy Lee, and then-Cardinal Fernando Viña.
