Gerald Mark Diduck (born April 6, 1965) is a Canadian retired professional ice hockey defenceman. He was drafted in the first round, 16th overall, by the Islanders in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. Diduck played 932 games in an NHL career that spanned eight different teams from 1984 to 2001. He played for the New York Islanders, Montreal Canadiens, Vancouver Canucks, Chicago Blackhawks, Hartford Whalers, Phoenix Coyotes, Toronto Maple Leafs and Dallas Stars. He is part of hockey lore as the man who ended the career of Islanders legend Bob Nystrom with an accidental high stick that almost cost Nystrom his eye; ironically, Diduck and Nystrom were teammates at the time.
