Jason Wayne Strudwick (born July 17, 1975 in Edmonton, Alberta) is a retired Canadian professional Ice Hockey Defenceman.

Playing careerEdit

Strudwick was drafted in the third round, 63rd overall by the New York Islanders in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft.[1] He played his first NHL game with the Islanders against the Hartford Whalers on March 30, 1996.[2]

On March 23, 1998, he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks for Gino Odjick.[1] On July 15, 2002, after compiling 367 Penalty Minutes with the Canucks, he signed as a free agent with the Chicago Blackhawks.[1]

After playing for the Hungarian team Ferencvárosi TC of OB I bajnokság during the 2004–05 NHL lockout, he returned to the NHL playing for the New York Rangers, the team with which he signed as a free agent before the lockout on July 20, 2004, for the 2005-06 season.[3]

Strudwick started the 2006–07 season with HC Lugano in Switzerland before signing a contract on March 19, 2007 with the Rangers.[3] Because he signed with the team after the trade deadline, he was not eligible to participate in the playoffs.[4] In July 2007, he signed a one-year contract with the Rangers and played with them through the 2007–08 NHL season.[3]

On July 10, 2008, Strudwick signed a one-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers for the 2008–09 NHL season.[5] Strudwick would re-sign with the Oilers during the summer of 2009.[3] On July 2, 2010, he again re-signed as a free agent with the Edmonton Oilers for another one-year contract.[3] On November 21, 2011, Strudwick signed with the Swedish club Södertälje Sportsklubb of HockeyAllsvenskan.[6] On May 24, 2012, Strudwick announced his retirement from Ice Hockey.[7]

Personal lifeEdit

Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, he was an honors student at Archbishop MacDonald High School.[8] He is now married and has two children.[8] He is a cousin of fellow former NHL players Scott and Rob Niedermayer.[9]

Strudwick is currently the host of Dinner Television on CityTV in Edmonton.
