Playing career

Bill Guerin has played for the Dallas Stars, the Boston Bruins, the Edmonton Oilers, the St. Louis Blues, the San Jose Sharks, the New Jersey Devils, the New York Islanders, and was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 4, 2009 just before the 3:00pm trade deadline. He has won the Stanley Cup twice, with New Jersey in 1995 and with Pittsburgh in 2009, the World Cup in 1996, a silver medal with Team USA at the 2002 Winter Olympics and was named MVP for the 2001 All-Star game. He was drafted in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft 5th overall by the Devils.

After a 41-goal season in 2001–02, as a free-agent, he left the Bruins and signed a 5-year contract with the Dallas Stars. Guerin performed below expectations during his tenure with the Stars. After a disappointing season in 2005–06 where he notched only 40 points, Dallas decided to buy out the remainder of his contract. The conditions of buyouts in the NHL meant that the Stars would pay him 2/3 of the remaining salary on his contract spread out over twice as many years. This meant $6.7 million over one year became $4.4 million over 2 years.

He became an unrestricted free agent, and on July 3, 2006, he signed a one-year $2 million dollar deal with the St Louis Blues. Playing on a line with former Oiler teammate Doug Weight, Bill revived his career, easily eclipsing his disappointing goal-scoring mark from the 2005–06 season. He was named to the 2007 All-Star game (hosted by the Dallas Stars) to represent the Blues. Despite numerous criticisms of his play during his time as a Star, Guerin received a standing ovation from the Dallas faithful in recognition as his status as a long time fan favorite.

On February 2, 2007, Guerin became the 214th NHL player to play in 1,000 games.

On February 27, 2007, Guerin was traded to the San Jose Sharks. for Ville Nieminen, prospect Jay Barriball, and a conditional first-round pick (Either New Jersey's in 2007 or San Jose's in 2008).

On July 5, 2007, Guerin signed a two-year contract with the New York Islanders. On July 9, 2007, Guerin was named captain of the New York Islanders, making him the 11th captain in Islanders history.

On March 4, 2009 Guerin was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins for a conditional draft pick. The pick, a 2009 4th round pick if the Penguins made the playoffs, was later turned into a 2009 3rd round pick once the Penguins advanced to the 2nd round of the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs.

On April 17, 2009 Guerin scored the overtime winning goal at 18:29 in the overtime period to put the Penguins up 2-0 in the playoff series against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Guerin won the Stanley Cup again on June 12, 2009, with the Pittsburgh Penguins. They defeated the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 at Joe Louis Arena.

On June 29th, 2009 Guerin signed a one year contract extension with the Pittsburgh Penguins to play through the 2009-10 season.
