Tom Barrasso was pretty young, I remember that. He was the only goalie to ever play in the NHL directly from high school, without having played any form of professional hockey. And he was the youngest winner of the Vezina, which he won in his rookie season in 1984.

According to his Wiki page: "At the time of his debut with the Sabres on October 5, 1983, less than six months after graduating from high school, Barrasso was the youngest goaltender to play and win a game in the NHL since Harry Lumley nearly forty years prior."

He also ranks first all-time among goaltenders with 48 points. Hey, the more you know.

Man, the Sabres have had it good when it comes to goalies. What the hell, man?

Patrick Marleau was born on the day (September 15th) that made him the youngest possible when he debuted. Born a day later and he'd have been in the '98 draft.

This doesn't give the names (well, I didn't look too hard), but it says there has been one 16-year-old and fourteen 17-year-olds. The latter, unsurprisingly, were mostly in early 40s. So, focus your search then if you can.

Interesting site I might not have found but for this thread.

In the modern day, I know Marleau has to be one of the youngest. He'd have been 18 years, 16 days if he debuted in the Sharks' first game in 97/98.

According to one site, two youngest in Kings' history were Aki Berg (18 years, 71 days) and Jimmy Carson (18 years, 81 days).

Pierre Turgeon might be around 18 years, 43 days.

The modern cut-off is that you have to turn 18 by Sept. 15 of your rookie year. Patrick Marleau has been the youngest player in the last 35 years by turning 18 on September 15.

Prior to that there was an 18 y/o draft for one year in 1974 (to keep young players from bolting to the WHA) without the September 15 cutoff. So for one year in 1974-75, a 18 y/o players with Sept 16-Dec 31 birthdays were in the league, including Grant Mulvey and Guy Chouinard.

During WW2 there were a bunch of guys who played at 17, including HHOF goalie Harry Lumley, Don Gallinger (who ended up being a total waste of talent, kicked out of the league at age 23 for gambling), and others. Bep Guidolin was the youngest player ever at age 16 in 1942-43.

Unless Marc Andre Fleury dropped out of high school, he also played in the NHL right out of high school. Within 5 months too. (as he started on October the 10th, 2003)

Many wouldn't consider the QJMHL to be professional hockey.

I guess Jordan Staal will be one of the youngest guys in the modern era, his birthday is September 10th.

The NCAA considers all CHL leagues to be pro because their players get paid. Barrasso played Massachusetts High School Hockey and went straight to the NHL. A little different from playing in the Q, W or O.
