Fred Brathwaite spent 11 years in the N.H.L. as a backup goalie in Edmonton, Calgary, St. Louis and even Columbus, with a fair chunk of time in the minor leagues as well. In all that time, he played just three playoff games.  

Adler Mannheim 4-0 DEG Metro Stars. A 47-save shutout by Fred Brathwaite blunts the Metros’ drive for first. It’s the fifth shutout of the season for the 35-year-old Ottawan, who leads the DEL with a .936 save percentage. Summary
