Bryce Chad Salvador (born February 11, 1976) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey defenceman. Salvador was drafted in the sixth round, 138th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft. During his professional career, he played for the New Jersey Devils and the St. Louis Blues.

Playing career[edit]

Salvador in 2013.

Salvador entered the NHL with a reputation as a gritty defenseman and engaged in three fights in his first 15 games. While in St. Louis, Salvador created a program with teammate Jamal Mayers called Jam 'n Sal's Community Stars, which recognizes kids who perform small acts of kindness and generosity. [1] Salvador was traded from the St. Louis Blues to the Devils for Cam Janssen. On July 1, 2008, Salvador re-signed with the Devils to a four-year deal worth $11.6 million.

On January 17, 2013, due to his leadership in the locker room and somewhat lengthy tenure on the roster, he was named the 10th captain in the New Jersey Devils history, and the third black captain in NHL history, behind Dirk Graham and Jarome Iginla.[2]

On September 2, 2015, Salvador announced his retirement from professional hockey.[3]
