Marc Chouinard (born May 6, 1977 in Charlesbourg, Quebec) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre-winger who most recently played for Kölner Haie. He has not formally announced his retirement, but has not played in over two and a half seasons.
Chouinard started his career in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 1993. After two successful seasons he was drafted in the 2nd round, 32nd overall by the Winnipeg Jets during the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He has never actually played for the Winnipeg Jets, as he was later traded to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. After a few years of playing with the teams American Hockey League affiliate, the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks, Chouinard was called up during the 2000–01 NHL season.
His success in the minors has not translated into success in the NHL, as his slow skating abilities have hampered his potential to score. He is used primarily as a checking line centre, used to kill off penalties and to shutdown the opposing teams top forwards. He has, however, had some success on the powerplay, as his large 6'5" frame is difficult for the opposing team's defenceman to move when placed in front of the net.
