Scott Niedermayer (b. August 31st 1973 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) is a professional defenseman who plays in the National Hockey League for the Anaheim Ducks.

Niedermayer was drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft, third overall. He played twelve seasons with the Devils, winning the Stanley Cup thrice (1995, 2000 and 2003) and taking part in as many NHL All-Star Games (1998, 2001 et 2004); he also won the James Norris Memorial Trophy in 2004, honouring his defensive play. He however also has a developped sense of offensive play, a sense that expressed itself best in 2005-06, where he posted career highs in assists and points (13 goals, 50 assists for 64 points).

Niedermayer won the gold medal with the Canadian National Team in the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. He was expected to take part in the 2006 Olympics in Torino, but an injury forced him to stay out of the competition.

After 12 seasons in New Jersey, Niedermayer signed with the Ducks in the summer of 2005, where he joined his brother Rob Niedermayer.
