Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dan Girardi
Daniel Girardi was born April 29, 1984 in Welland, Ontario. Undrafted, the 6'2 defenceman is a graduate of the OHL's London Knights, Guelph Storm, and Barrie Colts.

Girardi appeared in 231 career regular season games with Barrie, Guelph, and London, registering 21 goals and 96 assists for 117 points. Through five seasons in junior, Girardi reached the OHL Finals on three occasions, winning two OHL championships (Guelph 2004, London 2005), and one Memorial Cup (London 2005). After signing as a free agent with the New York Rangers in the summer of 2006, Girardi made his professional debut and spent a majority of his season with the club's AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolfpack. The following year Girardi split his time between the Wolfpack and the Rangers, making his NHL debut in a January 27, 2006 game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Excluding the lockout shortened season, Girardi played in at least 80 games from 2007-2008 to 2014-15. His steady play and durability made him a core piece of the Rangers blueline.

After 11 seasons with the Rangers, Girardi's time in New York would come to an end in the summer of 2017. As an unrestricted free agent he signed a deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
