Bruno St. Jacques (born August 22, 1980) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who plays for the Straubing Tigers of the German Deutsche Eishockey Liga. He previously played in 67 games over parts of four National Hockey League (NHL) seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers, Carolina Hurricanes, and Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
Bruno was drafted 253rd overall in the ninth round of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft by the Philadelphia Flyers. A junior from Baie-Comeau Drakkar of the QMJHL, Bruno made his professional debut at the tail end of the 1999–2000 season with Flyers affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms of the American Hockey League.
St. Jacques made his NHL debut in the 2000–01 season with the Flyers and spent the next two seasons primarily with the Phantoms before he was traded on February 7, 2003, along with Pavel Brendl to the Carolina Hurricanes for Sami Kapanen and Ryan Bast.
Prior to the 2005–06 season on October 3, Bruno was traded by the Hurricanes, to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim for Craig Adams. In his lone appearance with the Ducks he scored the only goal in a 4-1 defeat to the Minnesota Wild on October 15, 2005. However, he essentially played with AHL affiliate, the Portland Pirates, for the season.
In the 2006–07 season, on December 28, 2006, St. Jacques was traded from the Ducks, along with Pierre Parenteau, to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Sebastien Caron, Matt Keith and Chris Durno. He was then assigned to AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals, for the duration of the year.
On October 4, 2007, Bruno signed with the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL for the 2007–08 season. After 13 games with the Crunch, he was loaned to back to the Ducks affiliate, the Portland Pirates on November 15. He was effectively traded to the Ducks when the Columbus Blue Jackets, affiliate of the Crunch, sent Geoff Platt to Anaheim for Clay Wilson and Aaron Rome. On December 10, St. Jacques was signed by the Ducks but remained with the Pirates for the year.
On May 27, 2008, Bruno left North America and signed with German team, ERC Ingolstadt of the DEL. After three seasons with Ingolstadt, St. Jacques signed with fellow DEL team, the Struabing Tigers, on a one-year contract on June 3, 2011.
