Jamal David Mayers (born October 24, 1974) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey forward who played 15 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL). He was a member of the 2013 Stanley Cup-winning Chicago Blackhawks. He also spent time playing for the St. Louis Blues, Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames, and San Jose Sharks. He is currently an analyst for the NHL Network.
Prior to being drafted in the NHL, Mayers was a star player at Western Michigan University from 1992-96.
Mayers was drafted 89th overall by the St. Louis Blues in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft and played 10 seasons for the Blues until he was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange of a 3rd round pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft on June 19, 2008, one day before the draft.
On January 31, 2010, Mayers was traded along with Matt Stajan, Niklas Hagman and Ian White to the Calgary Flames for Dion Phaneuf, Fredrik Sjöström and prospect Keith Aulie. Mayers signed with the San Jose Sharks as a free agent at the end of the season for a one-year contract. On June 20, 2011, Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson announced that Mayers, and teammate Scott Nichol, would not be re-signed for the 2011-2012 season.
On July 1, 2011, Mayers signed with the Chicago Blackhawks to a one-year contract worth $550,000. The Blackhawks re-signed Mayers to a one-year contract worth $600,000 for the 2012–13 season. During the 2011–12 season Mayers was headbutted by the Minnesota Wild's Nate Prosser during a scrum in front of the net. Prosser apologized to Mayers after the game, and was given a one game suspension for his actions by the NHL.
On June 24, 2013, Mayers won the Stanley Cup as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks when they defeated the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals. This was Mayer's first Stanley Cup win in his 15 seasons in the NHL. Even though he did not play in the Stanley Cup Finals, the Blackhawks were successful in petitioning to have Mayer's name engraved on the Stanley Cup.
On December 13, 2013, Mayers officially announced his retirement from the NHL.
Mayers has been a pre-game, post-game, and intermission commentator for the Chicago Blackhawks on Comcast SportsNet Chicago during the 2014-2015 season.
