Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mark Streit
Mark Streit was born December 11, 1977 in Englisberg, Switzerland. The 9th round, 262nd overall selection of the Montreal Canadiens in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Streit honed his skills in his homeland before making his North American debut in 1999-00.

An solid defenseman, Streit split his first season in North America between the Springfield of the AHL, Utah of the IHL and Talahassee of the ECHL. A five-time member of Switzerland's World Championship team (2000-2004) and a member of its Olympic team in 2002, Streit opted to return to his homeland after only one season in North America. Over the course of the next five seasons Streit suited up for Zurich of the Swiss Elite League before returning to North America in 2005-06 as a member of the Montreal Canadiens.

As a member of the Canadiens, Streit became a regular on thee club's blue line through the 2005-06 season. He set career highs in the 2006-07 season only to have them beat the following season. His most offensively productive season came in 2007-08 when Streit finished tied for second in power play scoring among NHL defenceman. In the 2008 off-season however, the New York Islanders signed the free-agent defenceman to a 5-year contract.

Prior to the 2011-12 season, Streit was named the New York Islanders 12th captain in their franchise history.

After four seasons with the Islanders and pending free agency looming for Streit, he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers for Shane Harper and a fourth round draft pick on June 12, 2013. Later in the month the Flyers signed him to a four year extension.

Streit would patrol the Flyers blueline for three and a half seasons, which included a 10-goal campaign in 2013-14. On March 1, 2017, his time with the Flyers would come to an end. He was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a fourth round draft pick. The move would prove to be a fortuitous one for Streit as he appeared in 19 regular season games and three post-season games for the Penguins as Pittsburgh marched to their second consecutive Stanley Cup title.

In the summer of 2017, as an unrestricted free agent, Streit agreed to a deal with the club that had originally drafted him, the Montreal Canadiens.

On the international stage, Streit has represented his native Switzerland numerous times, including appearances in the Olympic Games, World Championship and World Cup of Hockey tournaments.
