Vermette

Antoine Vermette (born on July 20, 1982 in Saint-Agapit, Quebec, Canada) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre currently playing for the Arizona Coyotes of the NHL.

He played for the Blackhawks during the 2014-15 NHL season and won the Stanley Cup with them in 2015.

Playing CareerEdit

On February 28, 2015, the Arizona Coyotes traded Vermette (who was a pending unrestricted free agent) to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Klas Dahlbeck and a 2015 first-round draft pick (Nick Merkley) at the trade deadline.

While with the Blackhawks, Vermette’s role transitioned from a top-line forward to a role player with limited ice-time. He recorded only three assists during the rest of the 2014-15 regular season without any goals.

Vermette was a healthy scratch for the first two games of the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs. Shortly after being reinstated into the lineup, he scored his first goal as a Blackhawk against the Nashville Predators on April 22, 2015.

On May 23, 2015, he scored the game-winning goal against the Anaheim Ducks in double overtime of the Western Conference Finals to tie the series 2-2.

Vermette and the Blackhawks defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning to win the 2015 Stanley Cup. He finished the playoffs with four goals, including three game winners, and three assists.

He was also dominant on the face-off dot, winning 166 of 282 draws for a 58.9% face-off win percentage during the postseason.

On July 1, 2015, Vermette returned to the Arizona Coyotes on a two-year contract.
