Noah Paul Welch (born August 26, 1982 in Brighton, Massachusetts) is a professional ice hockey defenseman who currently plays for the Atlanta Thrashers of the National Hockey League.

Playing career

Welch was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, chosen 54th overall in the 2nd round. Noah was the captain of the Harvard University Hockey team, graduating in 2005. Before his college career at Harvard he played high school hockey at St. Sebastian's School in Needham, Massachusetts.

Welch made his NHL debut in the latter stages of the 2005–2006 seasonfor the Penguins in a victory over the NY Islanders picking up his first NHL point with an assist. In his next game against the Montreal Canadiens, having replaced the suspended Eric Cairns, he suffered a nightmare start, scoring in his own net, but made amends by scoring his first NHL goal in the third period against the team he always cheered against as a child and Boston Bruins fan. In total he scored four points (one goal, three assists) in five games. He was named to the AHL 2007 All-Star game, representing the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

On February 27th, 2007, Welch was traded by the Penguins to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Gary Roberts.

On March 4th, 2009, the Panthers traded Welch along with a third round draft pick to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Defenceman Steve Eminger.

On July 13, 2009, Welch signed a one-year contract with the Atlanta Thrashers.
