Eric Chouinard (born on July 8, 1980) is an American-born Canadian professional ice hockey player, who currently plays for the Thomas Sabo Ice Tigers of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL).

Playing careerEdit

Born in Atlanta during his father's days with the Atlanta Flames, Chouinard has played for Team Canada in international competition despite getting offers to play for Team USA. After scoring 296 points in 180 games with the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, he became a 1st-round draft choice (16th overall) by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. Since then, he has also played for the Philadelphia Flyers and the Minnesota Wild, where he played alongside his cousin, Marc Chouinard, during the 2003–04 season.

In 2006–2007, Chouinard played four games in Switzerland for HC Sierre-Anniviers. He received an offer to play for the Straubing Tigers of the German DEL where he played until January 19, 2009 when he was suspended by the team.

On September 2, 2009 Chouinard signed a contract with the Nurnberg Ice Tigers of the German elite league DEL. On January 15, 2011 he signed a new two-year contract extension with the Ice Tigers that will take him through the 2012–2013 season.[1]
