Marc Bergevin (born August 11, 1965) is a Canadian professional ice hockey executive and former player. He is currently the general manager of the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL). Bergevin played as a defenceman in the NHL.
Bergevin was drafted by the NHL Chicago Blackhawks in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft, third round, 59th overall. After a junior career with the Chicoutimi Saguenéens of the QMJHL, he made the Black Hawks in 1984 and played with Chicago for the next five seasons before being traded to the New York Islanders. His career with the Islanders was brief, and he spent much of that time with their AHL affiliate Springfield Indians, whom he helped lead to consecutive Calder Cup championships in 1990 and 1991. In the 1991 season he was traded to the Hartford Whalers and became a fan favorite for his skilled checking. 1992 was his best season statistically, scoring seven goals and seventeen assists for twenty-four points.
Bergevin went on to sign with the expansion Tampa Bay Lightning the next season, becoming a leader for the fledgling franchise and continuing to play skillfully enough to be named to the gold medal-winning Canadian national team for the 1994 World Championships. After three years with the Lightning, he subsequently played for the Detroit Red Wings, St. Louis Blues, Pittsburgh Penguins and the Vancouver Canucks, and was known for his practical jokes in the locker room.
Bergevin served as an alternate captain during part of his time with the Lightning and Blues.
He retired after the 2003–04 NHL season, and despite two stints in the minors and serious injuries in his final years, was in the top 100 in NHL history at the time of his retirement in games played in the NHL with 1191. Bergevin finished his career with 36 goals, 145 assists for 181 points and 1090 penalty minutes.
After his retirement, Bergevin was named a pro scout with the Blackhawks' organization. In 2008 he served as an assistant coach for the Blackhawks after three seasons with their scouting staff. In July, 2009, he was appointed the team's director of player personnel. While in this position, he won the Stanley Cup in 2010 after five years working to build the team.
On June 15, 2011, Bergevin was promoted to the position of assistant general manager of the Chicago Blackhawks. He replaced Kevin Cheveldayoff, who had left the Blackhawks organization to accept the general manager position with the new Winnipeg Jets team.
On May 2, 2012, Marc Bergevin was named general manager and executive vice president of the Montreal Canadiens. His first additions to the Montreal Canadiens included Rick Dudley as assistant GM, Scott Mellanby as director of player personnel, Martin Lapointe as director of player development and Michel Therrien as head coach. Other additions included the hiring of Kirk Muller as an associate coach in 2016, as well as Gerard Gallant, J.J. Daigneault and Clement Jodoin as assistant coaches. Bergevin also appointed former Montreal Canadiens defenseman Patrice Brisebois as player development coach on June 13, 2012. He finished second in voting for the GM of the Year award for the 2013–14 season.
