Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Rob Scuderi
Rob Scuderi was born December 30, 1978 in Syosset, New York. The fifth round, 134th overall selection of the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, Scuderi played two seasons with Apple Core of the MJBHL before enrolling at Boston College in the fall of 1997.

A steady blueliner, Scuderi registered 70 points (7-63-70) over the course of his four years at Boston College before joining the AHL s Wilkes-Barre Penguins in the fall of 2001. Following two 20 plus point seasons with Wilkes-Barre, Scuderi made his NHL debut with Pittsburgh during the 2003-04 season, while continuing to work on his game in the AHL and helping Wilkes-Barre/Scranton reach the Calder Cup final, only fall to the Milwaukee Admirals.

In 2009, in a 7-game epic Stanley Cup Final, the Penguins would dethrone the Red Wings and earn the franchise's third Stanley Cup title. Scuderi's strong defensive play was a key contributor to the Penguins success. His plus 5 rating was among the highest of Pittsburgh defensemen and he was frequently used to shut down opponent's top scorers.

Still basking in the glow of his first Stanley Cup championship, Scuderi signed a four-year, $13.6 million dollar contract with the Los Angeles Kings on July 2, 2009.

In Los Angeles, Scuderi would once again reach hockey ultimate peak. In 2012, he was part of the Kings club that stormed through the Western Conference playoffs and defeated the New Jersey Devils to capture the first Stanley Cup in franchise history.

On July 5, 2013, Scuderi re-signed with his former team; the Pittsburgh Penguins, to a four-year, $13.5M deal.

During the 2015-16 season the Penguins would trade Scuderi on December 14, 2015 to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Trevor Daley. His time in Chicago would be brief however. Just 17 games into his tenure he was traded again. This time to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Christian Ehrhoff.
