Jamal David Mayers (born October 24, 1974) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward who is currently a free agent. He was a member of the 2013 Stanley cup-winning Chicago Blackhawks.

Playing career[edit]

Prior to being drafted in the NHL, he was a star player at Western Michigan University from 1992-96.

He was drafted 89th overall by the St. Louis Blues in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft and played for the Blues until he was traded to the Maple Leafs in exchange of a 3rd round pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft on June 19, 2008, one day before the draft.

On January 31, 2010, Mayers was traded along with Matt Stajan, Niklas Hagman and Ian White to the Calgary Flames for Dion Phaneuf, Fredrik Sjöström and prospect Keith Aulie.[1]

He signed with the San Jose Sharks at the end of the season for a one-year contract.[2]

On June 20, 2011, Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson announced that Mayers, and teammate Scott Nichol, would not be re-signed for the 2011-2012 season.[3]

On July 1, 2011, Mayers signed with the Chicago Blackhawks to a one-year contract worth $550,000.[4] The Blackhawks re-signed Mayers to a one-year contract worth $600,000 for the 2012–13 season.[5]

During the 2011–12 season Mayers was headbutted by the Minnesota Wild's Nate Prosser during a scrum in from of the net. Prosser apologized to Mayers after the game, and was given a one game suspension for his actions by the NHL.[6]

On June 24, 2013, Mayers won the Stanley Cup as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks when they defeated the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals. This was Mayer's first cup win in his 15 years in the NHL. Even though he did not play in the Stanley Cup Finals, the Blackhawks were successful in petitioning to have Mayer's name engraved on the Stanley Cup.

International[edit]

Mayers was a member of the 2007 Canadian IIHF World Championship team that won gold in a 4–2 win against Finland in Moscow.
