Jarret Lee Stoll (born June 24, 1982) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently an unrestricted free agent who has signed a professional try-out contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League (NHL). Stoll has formerly played for the Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, New York Rangers and Minnesota Wild. Stoll has won the Stanley Cup twice with Los Angeles Kings in 2012 and 2014.
Stoll played his early minor hockey in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. He started in the small town of Neudorf, shortly thereafter moving on to minor hockey in Melville, and then to Yorkton, Saskatchewan. In 1997, Stoll helped the Yorkton Bantam AAA Terriers to a Western Canadian Championship. While in Yorkton, Stoll attended St. Paul's Elementary School and Sacred Heart High School. He has an older brother, Kelly, who played for the Yorkton Terriers of the SJHL, and a younger sister Elizabeth who played for the University of Saskatchewan Huskies Women's hockey Team.
After winning the bantam championship, Stoll moved on to play for the Saskatoon Blazers of the Saskatchewan Midget Triple A Hockey League. While in Saskatoon, Stoll attended St. Joseph High School. Prior to joining the Blazers, Stoll was the first overall pick of the 1997 WHL Bantam Draft by the Edmonton Ice.
Stoll started his WHL career at the end of the 1997–98 season with the Ice, while they were still located in Edmonton. After this season, the team relocated to Cranbrook, British Columbia, and were renamed the Kootenay Ice. He played his entire junior career with the Ice franchise. In his third season, he was named team captain. In his final junior season (2001–02), Stoll captained the Ice to a Memorial Cup championship.
While playing in Kootenay, Stoll went through the NHL draft process twice. In his initial year of eligibility, he was selected by the Calgary Flames 46th overall in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. He was unable to come to terms with the Flames. The Flames arranged a trade to the Toronto Maple Leafs, who thought they had made arrangements to have a contract signed by the appropriate deadline, but their fax to league headquarters did not make it in time. Stoll ended up re-entering the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. This time he was selected by the Edmonton Oilers 36th overall.
Also during his junior career, Stoll twice represented his country at the World Junior Hockey Championships, in 2001 and 2002, winning bronze and silver medals respectively. In 2002, Stoll was named captain for Team Canada.
After completing his junior career with Kootenay, Stoll entered the Oilers system, and suited up for the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL in 2002–03. During the season, he received his first call up to the Oilers, and played in his first four NHL games, registering an assist as his first career point. In 2003–04, he skated with the Oilers full-time. During the lock-out season of 2004–05, Stoll returned to the AHL, with the Edmonton Roadrunners.
During the 2005–06 season he played with the Oilers. During a game against the Vancouver Canucks on February 4, 2006, Stoll set an Oilers record by winning 21 of 22 faceoffs (95.45%). The 2005–06 season marked Stoll's first Stanley Cup playoffs appearance, highlighted by his game-winning goal in Overtime of Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals against the Detroit Red Wings. Heading into the 2007–08 season, Stoll was named one of the Oilers alternate captains for the team's road games.
Los Angeles Kings
On June 29, 2008, Stoll was traded to the Los Angeles Kings along with Matt Greene for Lubomir Visnovsky. On September 5, the Kings signed Stoll to a four-year deal worth $14.4 million. In 2008-2009, Stoll scored 18 goals with 23 assists for a total of 41 points. On April 22, 2012, he scored the series-winning goal in overtime to eliminate the Vancouver Canucks—the winners of the Presidents' Trophy—in Game 5 of the Western Conference Quarter Finals.
On June 11, 2012, Stoll won his first Stanley Cup with the Los Angeles Kings, their first championship in history of the franchise, against the New Jersey Devils. He re-signed with the Kings for three years and $9.75 million on June 25, 2012. On June 13, 2014, Stoll won his second Stanley Cup with the Los Angeles Kings, in game 5 against the New York Rangers.
New York Rangers and Minnesota Wild
On August 10, 2015, Stoll signed as a free agent to a one-year contract with the New York Rangers. Stoll made his debut with the Rangers as the team's fourth line centre on opening night of the 2015–16 season, in a 3-2 victory over defending champions the Chicago Blackhawks on October 7, 2015. After 29 games with the Rangers and contributing with just 1 goal and 3 points, Stoll was waived by the Rangers. On December 15, 2015, he was claimed off waivers by the Minnesota Wild.
As a free agent from the Wild at the conclusion of the season, Stoll was unable to attain an NHL deal, opting to sign a professional try-out contract to attend the Columbus Blue Jackets training camp on August 30, 2016.
Stoll's Los Angeles home was featured on MTV Cribs in 2011.
Stoll was engaged to model and actress Rachel Hunter, 13 years his senior, and they planned to marry in August 2009, but the wedding was called off. He has been romantically linked to sportscaster Erin Andrews since December 2012.
