Playing CareerEdit

AmateurEdit

Desjardins grew up in Lively, Ontario and played his minor hockey for the Onaping Falls Huskies (NOHA) until the bantam level in the 2001–02 season. After that year, he was selected in the 15th round (295th overall) of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL)'s 2002 Priority Selection by the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

Desjardins spent the following 2002–03 season playing for the Rayside-Balfour SabreCats Midgets of the Great North Midget League (NOHA) before making the Greyhounds roster the following year. He played four seasons (2003 to 2007) of junior hockey in the OHL with Sault Ste. Marie

ProfessionalEdit

Desjardins turned professional for the 2007–08 season, suiting up for 64 regular season and 11 playoff games for the Laredo Bucks of the Central Hockey League (CHL).

In the 2008–09 season, he played five games in the ECHL with the Phoenix RoadRunners and 74 regular season and 12 playoff games in the American Hockey League (AHL) with the Worcester Sharks. In the 2009–10 season, he played the entire year with Worcester.

On June 26, 2010, Desjardins signed with the San Jose Sharks as a free agent. He originally wore #69 with the Sharks, becoming the second player in NHL history behind Mel Angelstad to wear the number in a regular season game, though he later switched to #10.

On March 2, 2015, Desjardins was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for winger Ben Smith. He switched his jersey number to #11 upon arrival with Chicago because #10 was currently in use by Patrick Sharp at the time. He would win the Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks the same season.

On July 3, 2015, Desjardins signed a two-year contract worth $1.6 million to stay with Chicago. According to his agent, "[Desjardins] loved his time there," and "took less to stay."

In the 2016-17 season, Desjardins missed the first 13 games of the season due to a lower-body injury he sustained during the pre-season.
