Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jean-Francois Jomphe
A skilled offensive centreman, Jean-Francois Jomphe was a successful junior, minor pro and international player. In the late 1990s he emerged as a solid NHL role player whose speed and quickness were an asset to his team.

Born in Harve St. Pierre, Quebec, Jomphe was a consistent scorer in the QMJHL with the Shawinigan Cataractes and Sherbrooke Faucons. Following his last year of junior in 1993, he signed as a free agent with the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. He split his first pro season between the IHL and ECHL then opted to join the Canadian national team to expediate his development. Jomphe was an important offensive weapon for Canada in 1994-95, scoring 33 goals in 52 matches. He scored four goals at the 1995 World Championships when the Canadians won the bronze medal.

Jomphe played 31 games for Anaheim in 1995-96 and later helped Canada win the silver medal at the World Championships. In 1996-97 he played a regular shift and played 61 games but by the next season he was predominantly a reserve. The Ducks traded Jomphe to Phoenix at the start of the 1998-99 season but he spent most of his time with Las Vegas of the IHL. Prior to that year's trade deadline in March he was sent to the Montreal Canadiens where he played a few regular season matches before the end of the schedule.
