Nicolas Deschamps (born January 6, 1990) is a Canadian ice hockey forward. He is currently playing for Straubing Tigers of the DEL. Deschamp made his professional debut in the American Hockey League in 2009 when he appeared in two games for the Iowa Chops. He made his National Hockey League debut in the 2013–14 season with the Washington Capitals.

Playing career[edit]

Deschamps was a second round pick, 35th overall, of the Anaheim Ducks at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

He began his junior career in 2007–08, scoring 24 goals and 67 points in 63 games for the Chicoutimi Saguenéens.[1] He won the Michel Bergeron Trophy as the QMJHL's offensive rookie of the year, and was named to both the QMJHL and CHL All-Rookie Teams.[2]

After recording 65 points in 65 games for Chicoutimi in 2008–09, he was assigned to the Chops, appearing in two games before their season also ended.[3] He began the 2009–10 QMJHL season with Chicoutimi, appearing in 31 games before he was traded to the Wildcats.[4]

On January 3, 2012, Deschamps was traded from the Anaheim Ducks to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for left winger Luca Caputi. He was directly assigned to AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies, and re-established his scoring presence from his rookie season to record 30 points in 40 games, to help the Marlies reach the Calder Cup finals.

During the following 2012–13 season, Deschamps was again subject to trade, when he was dealt by the Maple Leafs to the Washington Capitals in exchange for Kevin Marshall on March 14, 2013.[5]

On July 23, 2014, Deschamps signed abroad in Finland, agreeing to a one-year deal with Liiga club, Oulun Kärpät.[6]
