Marc Bergevin (born August 11, 1965 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) is a retired French Canadian professional hockey defenceman.

Bergevin was drafted by the NHL Chicago Black Hawks in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft, third round, 60th overall. After a junior career with the Chicoutimi Saguenéens of the QMJHL, he made the Blackhawks in 1984 and played with Chicago for the next five seasons before being traded to the New York Islanders. His career with the Islanders was brief, and he spent much of that time with their AHL affiliate Springfield Indians, whom he helped lead to consecutive Calder Cup championships in 1990 and 1991. In the 1991 season he was traded to the Hartford Whalers and became a fan favorite for his skilled checking. 1992 was his best season statistically, scoring seven goals and seventeen assists for twenty-four points.

Bergevin went on to sign with the expansion Tampa Bay Lightning the next season, becoming a leader for the fledgling franchise and continuing to play skillfully enough to be named to the gold medal-winning Canadian national team for the 1994 World Championships. After three years with the Lightning, he subsequently played for the Detroit Red Wings, St. Louis Blues, Pittsburgh Penguins and the Vancouver Canucks, and was known for his practical jokes in the locker room. [1]

In a game between St. Louis Blues and the San José Sharks, Bergevin accidentally scored on his own net. In an attempt to clear the puck, he grabbed the puck with his glove and literally threw it in his own net, which was aired in a spot in the SportsCentre Top 10.

He retired after the 2003–04 NHL season, and despite two stints in the minors and serious injuries in his final years, is tied with Gilbert Perreault for 70th in all-time games played in the NHL with 1191. Bergevin finished his career with 36 goals, 145 assists for 181 points and 1090 penalty minutes.

After his retirement, Bergevin was named a pro scout with the Blackhawks' organization. In 2008 he served as an Assistant Coach for the Blackhawks after three seasons with their scouting staff. In July, 2009, he was appointed the team's Director of Player Personnel [2].
