Jean-Jacques Daigneault (born October 12, 1965) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently an assistant coach for the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Daigneault was selected tenth overall in the first round of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks. Daigneault is one of the most well-travelled players in NHL history. When he joined his 10th team, the Minnesota Wild, in 2000, he tied the NHL record held by Michel Petit. The record has since been broken by Mike Sillinger. Daigneault remains tied for second in the category, along with Petit and Jim Dowd.

Daigneault has played for the Vancouver Canucks (1984–851985–86), Philadelphia Flyers (1986–871987–88), Montreal Canadiens (1989–901995–96), St. Louis Blues (1995–96), Pittsburgh Penguins (1995–96 – 1996–97), Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (1996–97 – 1997–98), New York Islanders (1997–98), Nashville Predators (1998–99), Phoenix Coyotes (1998–99 – 1999–2000), and Minnesota Wild (2000–01). He played in the Stanley Cup finals with Philadelphia in 1987, and was a key member of the Montreal Canadiens as they won their 24th Stanley Cup in 1993.

1987 Stanley Cup Finals[edit]

Daigneault's earliest fame at the NHL level came when he scored the winning goal for the Philadelphia Flyers in the sixth game of the 1987 Stanley Cup Finals against the Edmonton Oilers. It was a somewhat unlikely goal, as Daigneault had scored all of 6 goals during the regular season, and, up to that point, had zero points in 8 playoff games. In 2006 this game was voted the 8th greatest game in Philadelphia Flyers history according to fan voting.[1]
