Jean-Phillipe Côté (born April 22, 1982) is a Canadian ice hockey defenceman who is currently a member of the Ontario Reign of the ECHL. He most recently played for the Hamburg Freezers of the DEL. Jean-Philippe is the son of former NHL player Alain Côté.
Unsigned from the Maple Leafs, Cote was signed to a AHL contract with the Hamilton Bulldogs for his first professional season in 2003–04. Cote eventually signed a contract in the coming season with NHL affiliate, the Montreal Canadiens.
During the 2005–06 season, he played his first game in the NHL on November 29, 2005, against the Ottawa Senators to fill in for the suspended Andrei Markov. He finished the night with 13 minutes of ice time, one penalty, and a -1. Later in the season, with another injury to Andrei Markov, Cote was recalled from the Bulldogs and played a regular shift. He often played with fellow 24-year-old blueliner Mike Komisarek, and the pair formed a solid and hard-working duo of defensive defensemen. After 8 games he was re-assigned to the AHL with the return of Markov.
Cote proceeded to play the next couple of seasons entirely with the Canadien's affiliate in the Bulldogs, culminating in winning the Calder Cup in 2007.
Prior to the 2008–09 season, Cote was given a try-out contract to participate in the Colorado Avalanche training camp. Following his release from the Avalanche on September 24, 2008, Cote was signed to a try-out with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins on October 8, 2008, where he remained for the duration of the year.
A free agent to begin the 2009–10 season, Cote left North America and belatedly signed a one-year contract with the Kassel Huskies of the DEL on November 6, 2009. Posting 13 points in 38 games in the final season of the Huskies, Cote then signed with fellow DEL team, the Hamburg Freezers for the 2010–11 season on March 22, 2010.
