Stéphan Bégin (French pronunciation: [beʒɛ̃]); born June 14, 1978) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre who most recently played for the Nashville Predators.

Playing careerEdit

He was drafted 40th overall, in the second round, by the Calgary Flames in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. He was traded from the Flames with Chris Drury to the Buffalo Sabres for Rhett Warrener and Steven Reinprecht on July 3, 2003.[1] Prior to playing a game for Buffalo, Bégin was claimed off waivers by the Montreal Canadiens on October 3, 2003. While not known as a prolific scorer, Bégin had become a fan favourite in Montreal for his strong work ethic and gritty play. He signed a three-year deal with Montreal on June 5, 2006, worth approximately one-million per season.

Bégin was traded to the Dallas Stars from Montreal on February 26, 2009, for defenseman Doug Janik.[2] On July 1, 2009, Bégin signed a one-year contract with the Boston Bruins.

On October 20, 2010, Bégin was signed in the early stages of the 2010–11 season, as a free agent to a one-year, two-way contract with the Nashville Predators. He then joined AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals, on a conditioning assignment in order to retain game shape.[3] On December 17, 2010 he returned to the NHL, making his debut with the Predators in a road game win against the New Jersey Devils.[4]

On September 2, 2011, Steve was signed to a professional tryout contract by the Vancouver Canucks. On September 25, 2011 he was released from the organization.
