Boston Bruins’ #1 goaltender is Tuukka Rask, a first-round pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Rask was traded to the Bruins before playing a single NHL game for Toronto and has emerged as a star with Boston, one of the league’s top young netminders. Rask is tall and very athletic; during his first full season with the Bruins (2009-10), he became the first rookie goalie in NHL history to post a goals-against average below 2.00 goals per game.
