Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Marc Methot
Marc Methot was born June 21, 1985 in Ottawa, Ontario. Drafted in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft 168th overall, with Colmubus' 7th pick, Methot is a graduate of the OHL's London Knights.

A stay at home defenceman, as a member of the London Knights Methot was a top four defender and a regular on the team's penalty killing unit. His most memorable season came in 2004-05, as Methot raked fourth in OHL plus/minus and captured a Memorial Cup championship with the Knights.

In his first full professional hockey season, Methot appeared in 70 games with the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL. The subsequent season, Methot split his year between the Blue Jackets and the club's AHL affiliate in Syracuse. That season, Methot would go on to make his NHL debut on February 25, 2007 in a regular season game against the Nashville Predators.

Prior to the 2012-13 season, Methot was traded to the Ottawa Senators for NIck Foligno. In Ottawa, Methot would establish himself as one of the club's top defensive defenceman. During the 2014-15 season, he recorded a career-high +22 rating.

Methot was left unprotected by the Senators at the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft and was subsequently selected by the Vegas Golden Knights. Days later he was traded to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Dylan Ferguson and a second round draft pick.

On the international stage, Methot represented Canada at the 2011 and 2012 World Championships.
