Matthew Barnaby (born May 4, 1973 in Ottawamarker, Ontariomarker) is a Canadianmarker retired NHL right winger. Barnaby played for the Buffalo Sabres, Pittsburgh Penguins, Tampa Bay Lightning, New York Rangers, Colorado Avalanche, Chicago Blackhawks and the Dallas Stars.

Playing career

He was drafted by Buffalo 83rd overall in the fourth round in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft.

Barnaby was generally considered a pest. Therefore, he racked up penalty minutes (his personal record was 335 with the 1995–96 Sabres), and was frequently involved in on-ice altercations. Among other incidents in 1996, in a game between the Sabres and the Philadelphia Flyers after a few hits and Barnaby laying on the ice presumably injured, a brawl between the two teams started. With the brawl in full motion, Barnaby jumped to his skates to punish Garth Snow, goaltender of the Flyers, who was poking Barnaby with his stick while the referees weren't looking.

One of his most celebrated fights was with Rob Ray in the 1999 season; the two are off-ice friends and had had dinner together the night before. Barnaby is known for his affable character off-ice and is one of the league's most willing interviewees.He attended Philemon Wright High School in Hull, Quebec.

While with the Penguins, Matthew was known for his charity work, being very fan friendly, and had a very loyal band of fans named the "Barnaby Brigade".

He infamously referred to then-New Jersey Devils defenceman Lyle Odelein as "Cornelius," a reference to the Roddy McDowall character in Planet of the Apes.

In the off season Barnaby lives in Buffalo, New Yorkmarker, where he and former Sabres teammate Rob Ray own a construction company. He also co-hosted The Enforcers on Time Warner Cable SportsNet with Ray until joining ESPN as an NHL analyst in late 2008.

In July 2007, Barnaby announced his retirement from the NHL due to a concussion he suffered in January, 2007. He stated he wanted to be around his son and daughter while they participate in hockey and gymnastics.

Broadcasting career

In September 2007, it was announced via the Sabres website that Barnaby would be given a tryout for replacing Jim Lorentz as color commentator for the Sabres. He served in that capacity for the September 26th pre-season game. The permanent position, however, went to Harry Neale instead.

He is an occasional broadcaster and analyst for the show NHL on TSN. Currently, he can be seen as a member of the commentary panel during the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Barnaby was forced to depart Time Warner Cable SportsNet after joining ESPN as its lead NHL analyst in October 2008, when Barry Melrose returned to the league to coach the Tampa Bay Lightning. Melrose returned to the network shortly after being fired just 16 games into the season.
