Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jean-Marc Pelletier
Jean-Marc Pelletier was born March 4, 1978 in Atlanta, GA. The 1st choice, 30th overall selection of the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, Pelletier is a graduate of the Quebec Midget AAA Hockey League's Richelieu Riverains where he spent two years before joining Cornell University in 1995-96.

Pelletier spent two seasons with the Big Red before opting to join the QMJHL's Rimouski Oceanic for the 1997-98 season. A member of the United States World Junior team at the 1998 World Junior Championships, Pelletier made his professional debut with the Flyers AHL affiliate the Philadelphia Phantoms the following year.

In his first full season of professional hockey, Pelletier played 47 games with the Phantoms and played well enough to earn his first NHL start with the Flyers before being re-assigned to the Phantoms in 1999-00.

Early into the 1999-00 season the Flyers traded Pelletier to the Carolina Hurricanes, who assigned him to the IHL's Cincinnati Cyclones where he spent the next two seasons before joining the AHL's Lowell Lock Monsters in 2001-02.

In 2002-03, Pelletier was acquired by the Phoenix Coyotes and would play the majority of the next two seasons in the AHL with Springfield, while seeing limited action in Phoenix. Following a lock out season in 2004-05, the former Cornell standout was acquired by the Florida Panthers in the summer of 2005.
