Scott Niedermayer, the most decorated player in Canadian hockey history, has announced his retirement, bringing to a close a 17-year NHL career that saw him win every major North American championship at least once. The Cranbrook, B.C., native played 46 games with the Maple Leaf on his chest, recording 16 points (7g, 9a).

It was undoubtedly his final appearance in the red and white of Team Canada that Niedermayer will be best remembered for – he donned the ‘C’ in his home province and helped lead Canada to the gold medal at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

The Vancouver gold capped off a remarkable international career that saw Niedermayer win an IIHF World Junior Championship gold medal (1990), an IIHF World Championship gold medal (2004), two Olympic gold medals (2002, 2010) and a World Cup of Hockey championship (2004). He is one of just seven Canadians in the IIHF Triple Gold Club (Olympic gold, Worlds gold, Stanley Cup).

As impressive as his international record is, Niedermayer was just as good at the club team level, winning a Memorial Cup with Kamloops in 1992, three Stanley Cups with New Jersey (1995, 2000, 2003) and one Stanley Cup with Anaheim (2007).

In addition to his team championships, Niedermayer has earned his share of individual accolades over the last two decades:

WHL West First All-Star Team (1990-91, 1991-92)

CHL Scholastic Player of the Year (1990-91)

Memorial Cup MVP (1992)

NHL All-Rookie Team (1992-93)

NHL Second All-Star Team (1997-98)

NHL All-Star Game (1998, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009)

NHL First All-Star Team (2003-04, 2005-06, 2006-07)

James Norris Memorial Trophy (2003-04)

Conn Smythe Trophy (2007)

A captain in New Jersey and Anaheim, Niedermayer finishes his NHL career with 740 points (172g, 568a) in 1,263 games.
