Brian Boucher is an American goalie on the Philadelphia Flyers.

Boucher was drafted 22nd overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in 1995, and quickly won the starting job in his rookie season (’99-00). Unfortunately, that season was his best to date, as he posted a 1.91 GAA and won 20 of 35 starts. In 2002, he was traded to Phoenix, where he posted 2 losing seasons before losing the starting job in 2005. He was traded to Calgary in 2006, but played only 3 games before being moved to Chicago. He was picked up by Columbus in 2007, and spent the last half of the season with the Blue Jackets. He was signed by San Jose in 2008, and has been the backup to Evgeni Nabokov since then. Despite being a backup most of his career, Boucher holds the record for the longest shutout streak in NHL history, a feat he performed with Phoenix, going for 332 minutes without allowing a goal over 5 1/2 games. In San Jose, Boucher’s first two starts were shutouts, and he did not allow a goal until his 3rd appearance as a Shark. In 2008-09, he posted a 12-6 record, with a 2.18 GAA over 22 appearances. Boucher signed a two year contract with Philadelphia, his original team, during the 2009 offseason.
