Bio

Eric Desjardins Bio

Desjardins' best seasons in the NHL were with the Philadelphia Flyers, but the most famous game in his career came with the Montreal Canadiens.

On June 3, 1993, Desjardins became the first defenseman in NHL history to score three goals in a Stanley Cup Final game; he scored all of Montreal's goals in a 3-2 overtime victory against the Los Angeles Kings in Game 2. Desjardins scored the tying goal with 1:13 left in the third period after Kings defenseman Marty McSorley was penalized by playing with an illegal stick, then scored again 51 seconds into overtime to win the game and complete the only hat trick of his NHL career. The Canadiens won the next three games and the Cup.
