Marc-André Bergeron (born October 13, 1980) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Montreal Canadiens.

Playing career

Bergeron was signed as a free agent by the Edmonton Oilers in 2001. The fast-skating defenceman with a penchant for end-to-end rushes reminded some of former Oiler great Paul Coffey and quickly became a fan favorite. The opinion was cemented after an open-ice hip check on Dallas Stars' Brenden Morrow in the 2003 playoffs that sent Morrow head-over-heels.

Near the end of game one of the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals, Bergeron tried to steer Carolina Hurricanes forward Andrew Ladd wide of the net, but the two of them piled into Oilers goaltender Dwayne Roloson, causing him to be injured for the remainder of the Finals. Bergeron is well known for his impressive slapshot. At the Edmonton Oilers skills competition, held November 26, 2006, he recorded his second straight victory in the hardest shot competition with a puck speed of 103.5 mph (approximately 165 km/h).

On October 6, 2009, Bergeron signed a 1-year contract worth $750,000 US with the Montreal Canadiens.
