<span class="txt18Strg">All-Star Profile </span><br /> <br /> <a href="#quick"><b>QUICK FACTS</b></a><br /> <a href="#he"><b>HE SAID IT</b></a><br /> <a href="#they"><b>THEY SAID IT</b></a><br /> <a href="#news"><b>IN THE NEWS</b></a><br /> <a href="#video"><b>VIDEO FEATURES</b></a><br /> <br /> <a name="quick"></a><b>QUICK FACTS</b><br /> In his first All-Star Game appearance in 1998, he won the fastest skater competition with 13.56 seconds. He outraced such speedsters as Pavel Bure, Tony Amonte and Peter Bondra to win the event. He commented on just wanting to watch his fellow All-Stars: &quot;I think I enjoyed that more than myself being out there. That way I can't screw up ... dribble the puck or trip over my skates. It's fun to watch the other guys.&quot; <br /> <br /> He has won four Stanley Cup championships, the most among active players, since making his NHL debut with the New Jersey Devils in 1991-92. He is the only player in hockey history to have won a Stanley Cup, Olympic Gold Medal, World Championship, World Cup, Memorial Cup and World Junior title. Niedermayer has been named a Norris Trophy finalist each of the past three seasons, winning the award in 2004. <br /> <br /> <a name="he"></a><b>HE SAID IT</b><br /> On what it takes to prepare for a season: &quot;There's a lot of different elements to be ready to play at your best, no question. It's one thing to have a good V02 score; it's one thing to be out there skating, having strong groins. It's also a whole other thing to mentally having the timing down, to get your hands feeling good, as well. There's just so many different elements to playing hockey, which I think makes it a great sport. It also makes having preparation time important.&quot; <br /> <br /> On his future and the Olympics: &quot;It would be a great experience if I was able to be part of that team and compete for your country, in your own county, in your home province. I really haven't decided (about the NHL next season), but I'd love to play in the Olympics.&quot; <br /> <br /> On his first All-Star Game: &quot;My first one was in Vancouver, obviously close to home. If I remember, I think Messier was there, I think Gretzky was probably there. That's pretty neat to be on the ice with guys you watch playing. That's sort of the biggest thing I remember.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="they"></a><b>THEY SAID IT</b><br /> Anaheim head coach Randy Carlyle on pairing him with rookie Brett Festerling: &quot;Scotty shows a lot of poise out there and he does a lot of things that no one notices. He'll help teach or help coach the young player because he has a lot of confidence; he has a lot of knowledge and a lot of skill. I don't think there is a better person in the world for Brett Festerling to play with.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="news"></a><b>IN THE NEWS</b><br /> <a href="http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/news/story.html?id=feab167f-2be3-4309-b349-ad717caf0dfd">Ducks defenseman sets sites on 2010</a><br /> <br /> <a name="video"></a><b>VIDEO FEATURES</b><br /> <a href="http://ducks.nhl.tv/team/console.jsp?type=fvod&amp;id=29741&amp;catid=649">Named 2009 NHL All-Star Game starter</a><br /> <br /> <span class="txt14Strg">Career All-Star Game Statistics </span> <div id="asstatsbox" style="border: 1px solid rgb(161, 161, 161); margin: 4px 0px; padding: 0px; float: left; width: 660px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0" class="asstat"> <tbody> <tr class="headrw"> <td>SEASON</td> <td>TEAM</td> <td>Score</td> <td>R</td> <td align="center">GP</td> <td align="center">G</td> <td align="center">A</td> <td align="center">PTS</td> <td align="center">+/-</td> <td align="center">PIM</td> <td align="center">PP</td> <td align="center">SH</td> <td align="center">GW</td> <td align="center">SOG</td> </tr> <tr> <td>1997-98</td> <td>N.

Quote of the Day

I think Loui Eriksson is a player that can be even better than he was last year. I think we started seeing that at the end of the year, and he could be a replacement for Jarome as a possibility.
