Four-time Stanley Cup champion Scott Niedermayer
will guest on this week's NHL Hour With Commissioner Gary Bettman. The show, which encourages fans to call in with questions, airs Thursday nights on NHL.com and on Sirius XM Radio at 6 p.m., ET.
One of the top defensemen of his generation, Niedermayer was a first-round draft pick (No. 3) of the New Jersey Devils
in 1991 and went on to win Stanley Cups with them in 1995, 2000 and 2003. Niedermayer signed with the Anaheim Ducks
as a free agent following the 2003-04 season and lifted his fourth Cup along with his brother Rob in 2007.
Niedermayer, who had 11 seasons with double-digit goal totals en route to finishing with 172 goals and 740 points in 1,263 games, is set to have his No. 27 retired by New Jersey in a ceremony prior to Friday night's game against the Dallas Stars
, the team the Devils beat for their second championship. Niedermayer's number will be just the third retired in Devils' history.
