Learn More about Joe Nieuwendyk:
Joe Nieuwendyk won three Stanley Cup championships with three different teams – Calgary, Dallas and New Jersey. Plus he won an Olympic gold medal with Team Canada in 2002. In 1999 he was named as the Conn Smythe trophy winner during the Dallas Stars Stanley Cup run.
In 1988 he won the Calder trophy as best NHL rookie, and in 1995 he won the King Clancy award for his leadership on and off the ice. Nieuwendyk played 1,257 games in his career, scoring 559 goals and 1,126 points.
Cliff Fletcher, who drafted him into the NHL, described Nieuwendyk as being a “pre-eminent two-way guy who had 50-goal seasons”, adding that “he had a great stick around the net, he had a great shot, he saw the ice well, he could skate, he had the size – he had everything you needed to have. History has indicated that wherever he went, the team was competitive. The more that was on the line in big games, the better Joe played.” He was an offensive centre in Calgary and power play specialist, able to withstand the physical punishment required to stand in front of the net and battle defencemen for the puck. He led the NHL in power play goals in 1987–88 with 31 and finished in the top ten on four other occasions.
Niewendyk played in the NHL from 1987-2006 for the Cargary Flames, Dallas Stars, New Jersey Devils, Toronto Maple Leafs and the Florida Panthers. He retired on December 7, 2006 and was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2011.
