A defenceman, Barrett was selected in the 1978 NHL Entry Draft by the Detroit Red Wings with whom he spent most of his NHL career. His older brother Fred was also an NHL defenceman. Both of their careers were cut short by injuries. Following repeated kneecap breaks, John retired after 488 NHL games, recording 20 goals, 77 assists, (97 points), and 604 penalty minutes.
