Ducks Name Scott Niedermayer Assistant Coach
Niedermayer led the Ducks to the Stanley Cup in 2007, his fourth overall.
The Ducks announced today that they have named Scott Niedermayer assistant coach. Niedermayer, who retired from the NHL on June 22, 2010 and remained with the Ducks as a Hockey Operations consultant, will join Bruce Boudreau’s coaching staff immediately. Niedermayer is joined by fellow assistant coaches Bob Woods and Brad Lauer, and video coordinator Joe Piscotty.

“I’m very excited to expand my role with the Ducks and take on a new challenge,” said Niedermayer. “I’m grateful to Bob Murray, Bruce Boudreau and the Ducks organization for giving me this opportunity and can’t wait to get started.”

Niedermayer talks to media about his new role

Signed as a free agent with the Ducks on Aug. 4, 2005 and named the sixth captain in club history on Oct. 3, 2005, Niedermayer helped Anaheim become the first team from California to win hockey’s ultimate prize in 2007. He was presented with the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Niedermayer appeared in his final 371 regular season NHL contests in an Anaheim uniform, scoring 60-204=264 points with 306 penalty minutes. Niedermayer is the Ducks’ all-time leader in goals, assists, points and power play goals (39) among club defensemen.

“As a player, Scott was one of the great leaders and winners of all time, making him a tremendous addition to our coaching staff,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “His knowledge of the game and relationship with the players will be a great benefit for us. And he’s even a better person than a hockey player.”

Niedermayer, 39 (8/31/73), is the only player in hockey history to have won a Stanley Cup, Olympic gold medal, World Championship, World Cup, Memorial Cup and World Junior title (no other player other than Niedermayer has even won five of those six). No NHL player won more than Niedermayer’s four Stanley Cups during his playing career (Draper, Holmstrom, Lidstrom, Maltby and McCarty have also won four in that time). In addition, Niedermayer is the only player in hockey history to have won a combination of four Stanley Cups and two gold medals.

In 18 NHL seasons with the Ducks and New Jersey Devils, Niedermayer appeared in 1,263 games, collecting 172-568=740 points with a +167 rating. Thirteen of his 39 career game-winning goals came in overtime, the most by a defenseman in NHL history. Niedermayer is the all-time leading scorer among defensemen for both the Ducks and Devils.

Niedermayer also won three Stanley Cups during his tenure with New Jersey (1995, 2000 and 2003). He was named a finalist for the James Norris Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s top defenseman in three straight seasons (2004, 2006 and 2007) and won the award following the 2003-04 season. He was also named an NHL All-Star six times during his NHL career (1998, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2008 and 2009).

A native of Cranbrook, British Columbia, Niedermayer captained Team Canada to the gold medal in Vancouver at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Canada captured the tournament title with an overtime victory (3-2) against Team USA. He won his first Olympic gold medal at the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City. In international competition, Niedermayer also won gold with Canada at the 1991 World Junior Championships, the 2004 World Cup and the 2004 World Championships.
