Andre Deveaux (born February 23, 1984) is a Bahamaian-born Canadian professional ice hockey player who currently plays for the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL). He was selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the 6th round (182nd overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.

Deveaux was born in Freeport, Bahamas, but he is a naturalized Canadian citizen who was raised in Welland, Ontario.

Playing careerEdit

Initially drafted by the Montreal Canadiens, 182nd overall in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, He made his NHL debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs on November 27, 2008 against the Ottawa Senators. In addition to playing with the Maple Leafs, Deveaux has been a member of the Toronto Marlies, Chicago Wolves and Springfield Falcons of the AHL and the Johnstown Chiefs of the ECHL. Deveaux is the first person born in the Bahamas to play in the NHL.[1]

On February 12, 2010, after getting penalized for a melee in a game between the Marlies and the Manitoba Moose in Winnipeg involving almost all the players on the ice, Deveaux was alleged to have been taunted with racial slurs by a fan while in the penalty box. Deveaux subsequently threw a roll of hockey tape into the heckler's direction and was suspended for three games by the AHL.[2]

On August 24, 2010, Deveaux signed as a free agent to a one-year contract to return to the AHL's Chicago Wolves.[3]

On August 16, 2011, Deveaux signed as a unrestricted free agent with the New York Rangers.[4]

On November 25, 2011, Deveaux was suspended by the NHL for 3 games. The reason given for this was delivering an illegal check to the head of Florida forward Tomas Fleischmann on a game between the New York Rangers and the Florida Panthers played on November 23, 2011.[5] Deveaux was eligible to return December 1, 2011, however this did not happen as New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced Deveaux had instead been assigned to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League.[6]
