Barry Pederson is a former Boston Bruins standout who now serves as a studio analyst for Bruins games on NESN. The Saskatchewan native was a first-round draft pick of the Bruins in 1980 (18th overall), and broke into the NHL with a bang during the 1981-82 season. In one of the great rookie campaigns in club history, Pederson scored a team rookie record 44 goals and finished second (to Dale Hawerchuk) in the Calder Trophy voting as the NHL’s outstanding rookie. Despite playing only 5 full seasons with the Bruins, Barry still ranks 20th on the B’s all-time points list with 417. In 1986, he was traded to Vancouver as part of the blockbuster trade that brought Cam Neely to Boston. Pederson returned to Boston during the 1991-92 season to finish his career after stints in Pittsburgh, where he was a member of the Stanley Cup champion Penguins squad in 1991, and Hartford.
