John Madden (ice Hockey)

John Madden (born May 4, 1973) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey centre. An undrafted player, he won three Stanley Cups during his National Hockey League (NHL) career; two with the New Jersey Devils, and one with the Chicago Blackhawks. Madden was noted during his career for his ability to kill penalties, play both ends of the ice, and score shorthanded goals.

Madden was regarded during his career as one of the league's best defensive forwards; he was awarded the Frank J. Selke Trophy in 2001, and finished second in voting 2003, 2004 and 2008. His penalty-killing skills often generated breakaway chances while his team was shorthanded. Madden led the NHL and set a New Jersey Devils' team record — and tied the NHL rookie record (G. Minor, Van., ’80-81) — by scoring six shorthanded goals during the 1999–2000 season. After playing 14 seasons, he retired on September 4, 2012.
