Barry Brust (born August 8, 1983) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. Brust is currently playing for HC Slovan Bratislava of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). Brust has played in National Hockey League (NHL) for the Los Angeles Kings.
Brust was drafted in the third round, 73rd overall in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft by the Minnesota Wild from the Spokane Chiefs of the Western Hockey League. After his final year in the WHL with the Calgary Hitmen, Brust signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Kings to a three-year contract on June 9, 2004.
After initially beginning his professional career with the Kings ECHL affiliate of the Reading Royals, Brust moved up to the AHL with the Manchester Monarchs before making his NHL debut with the Kings in the 2006–07 season and played in 11 games, winning two.
After not being offered a qualifying offer by the Kings before the 2007–08 season, he signed with the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League, the primary affiliate of his original draft team in the Minnesota Wild. Brust was awarded at season's end, along with Aero's teammate Nolan Schaefer, the Harry "Hap" Holmes Memorial Award for the fewest goals against in the AHL. On July 1, 2008, Brust was signed to a new two-year deal with the Wild and was assigned back to the Aeros.
After beginning the 2009–10 season with a persistent foot injury from the previous injury affected season, Brust was reassigned from the Aeros to the Florida Everblades of the East Coast Hockey League on a rehab assignment on November 10, 2009.
On July 21, 2010, Brust left the Aeros organization after three years and signed as a free agent to a one-year contract with the Binghamton Senators of the AHL. After one season with the Senators, during which the team won the Calder Cup, Brust signed a one-year contract with Straubing in July 2011.
After a solid season abroad in the German DEL, Brust returned to North America to sign a one-year AHL contract with the Abbotsford Heat on August 8, 2012.
On November 24, 2012, Brust set a new AHL record for longest shutout streak at 268 minutes and 17 seconds, breaking Hockey Hall of Famer Johnny Bower's previous record set with the Cleveland Barons in 1957.
