Biographical Info

A great 2 way defenseman who has won at every level, Scott Niedermayer grew up in Cranbrook, British Columbia. As a junior player, Niedermayer won the WHL Championship with the Kamloops Blazers, but ultimately failed to win the Memorial Cup. Drafted 3rd overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 1991 NHL Draft, Niedermayer would spend 1 more season in Kamloops before beginning a 13 year stint with the Devils, winning 3 Stanley Cups (1995, 2000, 2003). Niedermayer would also win his only Norris Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman in 2004, his final season with the Devils. A free agent after the 2005 lockout, Niedermayer signed with the Anaheim Ducks, whom he’d captain to a Stanley Cup title in 2007. Niedermayer’s strong postseason performance earned him the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. Throughout his career, Niedermayer represented Canada several times. A member of the Triple Gold Club (players to win a World Championship, Olympic Gold Medal and a Stanley Cup), Niedermayer won Gold at the 1991 World Junior Hockey Championships, 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, 2004 World Championships, 2004 World Cup of Hockey and as Canada’s captain at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Niedermayer also won a Silver Medal with Team Canada at the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. Niedermayer would retire at the conclusion of the 2010 season, and is currently an assistant coach with the Anaheim Ducks.
