Adrian Aucoin

Islanders 2001-2004
Coyotes 2009-2012

A career that spanned over parts of 18 NHL seasons, Adrian Aucoin made three-year stops with both the Isles and Yotes. 

He was acquired by the Islanders in 2001 along with Alexander Kharitonov from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Mathieu Biron and a second-round pick. After his first season with the Islanders, Aucoin re-signed on Long Island for an additional two years.

In 2003-04 he put up his best single-season stats, finishing with 11 goals and 33 assists, and was named a 2004 NHL All-Star. 

After four seasons split between the Chicago Blackhawks and Calgary Flames, Aucoin signed with the Desert Dogs before the 1999-2000 season. He’d help lead the Coyotes to the playoffs in all three seasons spent with the team and was part of the 2012 team that won the franchise's first playoff series since relocating from Winnipeg. 

Aucoin finished his Coyotes career playing in 221 games, scoring 13 times and adding 46 assists.
