Jean-Jacques "J. J." Daigneault (born October 12, 1965 in Montreal, Quebec) is a Canadian retired professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently an assistant coach for the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Playing careerEdit

Daigneault was selected tenth overall in the first round of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks. Daigneault is one of the most well-travelled players in NHL history. When he joined his 10th team, the Minnesota Wild, in 2000, he tied the NHL record held by Michel Petit. The record has since been broken by Mike Sillinger. Daigneault remains tied for second in the category with Petit and Jim Dowd.

Daigneault has played for the Vancouver Canucks (1984–851985–86), Philadelphia Flyers (1986–871987–88), Montreal Canadiens (1989–901995–96), St. Louis Blues (1995–96), Pittsburgh Penguins (1995–96 – 1996–97), Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (1996–97 – 1997–98), New York Islanders (1997–98), Nashville Predators (1998–99), Phoenix Coyotes (1998–99 – 1999–00), and Minnesota Wild (2000–01). Even with all his travels J.J. played in the finals for Philadelphia in 1987, and was a key member of defence for the Montreal Canadiens helping them win their 24th Cup in 1993.

1987 Stanley Cup FinalsEdit

He is perhaps best remembered for scoring the winning goal in the Philadelphia Flyers Game 6 victory of the 1987 Stanley Cup Finals against the Edmonton Oilers. Trailing 2–1 entering the 3rd period, the Flyers were able to capitalize on their sixth power play attempt of the game as Brian Propp scored a power play goal at 13:04 to tie the score.

Just one minute and 24 seconds later (14:28), Daigneault scored one of the most memorable goals in Flyers history as his hard shot from the point found its way through 4 players, past Oilers goaltender Grant Fuhr and into the net to give the Flyers a 3–2 lead. It was a most unlikely goal as Daigneault had scored all of 6 goals during the regular season, and, up to that point, had zero points in 8 playoff games (Having been a healthy scratch for most of the 1987 playoffs). The Game 6 win brought the Flyers back from a 3–1 series deficit to force the first Stanley Cup Finals Game 7 since 1971. The Flyers ultimately lost this game 3–1, giving the Oilers their 3rd Stanley Cup in 4 seasons.

In 2006, Daigneault's goal was voted the 8th greatest moment in Philadelphia Flyers history, according to fan voting.
