Marc Philippe Methot (born June 21, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently a member of the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). He previously played in the NHL with the Columbus Blue Jackets, who drafted him 168th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
Methot was a member of the OHL’s London Knights from 2002 to 2005, winning the Memorial Cup with the team in 2004-05. He made his NHL debut with Columbus during the 2006-07 season, appearing in 20 games. He became a regular on the Columbus blueline in 2008–09.
On July 5, 2011, the Blue Jackets re-signed Methot to a four-year contract extension. He played for Team Canada during the 2011 and 2012 World Championships. An assortment of injuries limited Methot's effectiveness with the Blue Jackets, most notably a mandibular fracture suffered during the 2011–12 season.
On July 1, 2012 Methot was traded to the Ottawa Senators for forward Nick Foligno. Ottawa had reportedly on multiple occasions attempted to acquire the defenceman during the 2011–12 season but were unable to get the deal finalized. The loss of two of Ottawa's starting six defencemen via free-agency meant that acquiring a defenceman became a major priority, and the team again set their sights on Methot, an Ottawa native. After starting the season paired with Norris Trophy winning defenceman Erik Karlsson, Methot was charged with the responsibility on anchoring the team's defence after his partner was lost to an achilles injury. The Senators finished the year with the second lowest Goal-Against-Average, and Methot's steady play led to a invite to the Canadian Olympic training camp in the summer.
On February 16, 2015 Methot signed a contract extension with Ottawa worth $19.6 million over four years.
