Eric P. Beaudoin (born May 3, 1980 in Ottawa, Ontario) is a professional ice hockey forward, currently playing with the Straubing Tigers of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). He has previously played in the National Hockey League with the Florida Panthers.

Playing career[edit]

Eric Beaudoin was drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. He started his hockey career in the OHL, and has played for the Florida Panthers in the NHL as well as several AHL teams. In the fall of 2005, he signed with the Newcastle Vipers, but was released from his contract for a one-month tryout with Jokerit in the Finnish SM-liiga.[1]

When he was not signed on after the tryout, Beaudoin agreed to a subsequent two-game tryout with HPK that also did not lead to a contract. Eventually Beaudoin agreed to a contract for the rest of the season with Ässät, but instead signed with Mora IK in the Swedish Elitserien. He stayed in Mora for three years before signing a one-year contract with Swedish top-team Linköpings HC. After concluding a one-year contract with Linköpings, in May 2009, he signed another one-year term contract with Rögle BK.

Upon completion of his contract with Rögle, Beaudoin opted to switch leagues and joined EHC Biel of the Swiss National League A.

Beaudoin enjoyed parts of three seasons with Biel, before joining as a free agent to sign with German club, Straubing Tigers of the DEL on June 23, 2013.[2]
