Born: Aug 11, 1965

Acquired: Traded to Detroit by Tampa Bay with Ben Hankinson for Shawn Burr and Detroit's third-round choice (later traded to Boston) in 1996 entry draft on August 17, 1995.
Drafted: CHI / 1983 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 3rd (59th overall)
Since making his NHL debut in 1984-85, defenseman Marc Bergevin has played over 1,000 regular-season games for eight different clubs. He was respected for taking the body in his own end and moving the puck up ice effectively.

The Montreal native excelled with the Concordia squad in the city's amateur league before catching on with the QMJHL's Chicoutimi Sagueneens. The rugged blueliner solidified the defence corps and contributed 75 points in two seasons. Chosen 60th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in 1983, Bergevin played a handful of games in the minors before suiting up for 60 games in 1984-85. The rookie looked solid and later played six games in the post-season when the Hawks reached the semifinals.

The steady rearguard continued to toil on the Chicago blueline until he was traded to the New York Islanders in November 1988. New York was rebuilding and trying to add flashier players to keep the fans' waning interest. Bergevin was traded to the Hartford Whalers and set a personal best with 24 points in 1991-92. His impressive play was noticed by the expansion Tampa Bay Lightning who signed him as a free agent in July 1992.

Bergevin anchored the young Lightning defense corps for three seasons. He was a favourite of coach Terry Crisp who convinced his team to play sound defensive hockey to remain competitive. In August 1995, the veteran blueliner was acquired by the powerful Detroit Red Wings. Bergevin kept the front of the Wings' net clear for 70 games and played 17 playoff games when the team reached the semifinals. Following the season he was signed as a free agent by the St. Louis Blues and played four seasons there as the club rose to the upper echelons of the league. Part way through the 2000-01 season he was picked up by the Pittsburgh Penguins to add some defensive awareness to the fast-skating club.

The Montreal, Quebec native played one season with the Penguins before rejoining the Blues the following year where he once again played only one season before the Penguins re-acquired him in 2002-03.

Entering the 2002-03 season the Pittsburgh Penguins were faced with financial difficulties and once the trading deadline came around the team was very active in dumping players with high salaries and by doing so, Bergevin became one of those who found himself on the move rejoining the Tampa Bay Lightning. Upon his arrival in Tampa Bay, Bergevin saw action in one game before being re-acquired by the Penguins in the summer of 2003. Bergevin was looked upon to guide a very young Penguins roster who struggled for the better part of the 2003-04 season. In his third stint with the Penguins, Bergevin saw action in 52 games before he was dealt to the Vancouver Canucks at the trading deadline. Bergevin would appear in a handful of games with the Canucks before announcing his retirement from the game.

On the international stage, Bergevin represented Canada at the 1994 World Championships.
