Justin Papineau (born January 15, 1980), is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre who played for Adler Mannheim of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga in Germany until 2011. In the NHL, he played for the St. Louis Blues and the New York Islanders between 2001 and 2004.
He was then re-selected in the third round, #75 overall by the St. Louis Blues in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft when the Kings were unable to sign him to a contract within the two-year deadline and retain his rights. It was reported that negotiations between the team's front office and Papineau broke down at least partially due to the involvement an overbearing agent demanding a huge entry contract.
Papineau has played 81 career NHL games for the Blues and New York Islanders, scoring 11 goals and 8 assists for 19 points. Papineau was once compared to star Steve Yzerman, but those comparisons never came to fruition at the NHL level. He left then on 6 April 2009 EHC Wolfsburg Grizzly Adams to sign with Adler Mannheim.
