Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Stephen Gionta
Stephen Gionta was born on October 9, 1983 in Rochester, New York. An undersized forward, he played his collegiate hockey at Boston College and though undrafted, signed with the Albany River Rats in 2006.

Stephen made his NHL debut on November 5, 2010 in a 3-0 loss against the New York Rangers. He would see action in 12 games for the club during the 2010-11 season, failing to record a point.

Gionta would spend the majority of the 2011-12 season in the American Hockey League, but would make waves during the NHL playoffs. His determined style of play would make him a key contributor to the Devils post-season run. He appeared in all 24 of the Devils' playoff games, helping the club to the Eastern Conference title.

On the international stage, Gionta has represented the United States twice. This is highlighted by a Bronze Medal performance at the 2013 IIHF World Championship.
