Biography

Derian Hatcher is known as a physical defenseman and a strong bodychecker and uses his intimidating size (6'5", 245 lb.) to good effect. He was drafted in the 1st Round as the 8th Overall selection by the Minnesota North Stars in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft and scored in his NHL debut game on October 12 1991. Hatcher played for the North Stars and went with them when they moved to Dallas in 1993.

He played another 10 years for the Dallas Stars, collecting 71 goals, 223 assists, 1,380 penalty minutes, and captained the Stars to the Stanley Cup in 1999. In doing so, he became the first American born Captain to win the Stanley Cup. In July 2003, Hatcher signed with the Detroit Red Wings for a five-year $30 million contract.

In 2004, due to the cancellation of the NHL season, Hatcher, along with fellow Detroit Red Wings teammates Chris Chelios and Kris Draper, decided to play minor league hockey with the Motor City Mechanics based out of Fraser, Michigan.

On August 2 2005, Hatcher signed with the Philadelphia Flyers after his contract with Detroit was bought-out due to the new salary cap.

Despite his parting from the Red Wings, Hatcher continues to call Michigan home. Hatcher also owns a bar/restaurant, named "Hatchy's", on Auburn Road in downtown Utica, MI along with his brother Kevin.

On January 29 2006, Hatcher was named captain of the Philadelphia Flyers. He served as captain for the rest of the 2005-06 season due to the absence of injured captain Keith Primeau.
