Marco Johann Sturm (born September 8, 1978 in Dingolfingmarker, West Germanymarker) is a Germanmarker professional ice hockey forward and alternate captain currently playing for the Boston Bruins in the National Hockey League. He previously played for the San Jose Sharks of the NHL.

Playing career

He was drafted by the San Jose Sharks 1st round (21st overall) in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. Sturm scored his first career NHL goal against Jeff Hackett of the Chicago Blackhawks on October 3, 1997. He was then traded to the Boston Bruins on 30 November, 2005 with Brad Stuart and Wayne Primeau for Joe Thornton. As of the end of the 2007–08 Boston Bruins season, Sturm is the only player involved in that trade that is still with the team.

A notoriously strong skater, he is often referred to as "the fastest German on ice." His forays into the offensive zone are known as the "blitzkrieg". In the 1999 All-star game, Marco Sturm had the second best time to Peter Bondra in the fastest skater competition.

Sturm was to be the captain of Germany's men's ice hockey team at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italymarker, but pulled out days before leaving for Italy due to an unspecified upper-body injury.

On February 24, 2007, Sturm agreed to a multi-year contract extension.

As of February 2, 2008, Sturm played in his 730th career NHL professional ice hockey game, more than any other Germanmarker-born and raised player.

In the listing for the German national team roster for the 2008 IIHF World Ice Hockey Championships, Marco Sturm is one of the selected German-born NHL players to be selected to play for Team Deutschland as of April 26, 2008.

Marco Sturm's most famous goal may have come in the 2008 Stanley Cup playoffs in the first round against the Montreal Canadiens. With less than three minutes remaining in regulation of Game 6, Sturm took a wrist shot from the right point on Canadien goaltender, Carey Price. After saving the initial shot, Price gave up a costly rebound, and Sturm, leaping over a fallen Montreal defender, held the puck and proceeded around the diving Montreal goaltender, and flipped the puck into the top right corner of the net. This resulted in the game-winning goal for the Boston Bruins and sent the underdog Bruins back to Montreal for a game 7, which was won by the Canadiens.

Sturm was forced to undergo surgery to repair his meniscus and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee during the 2008-09 NHL Season. He played in just 19 games, scoring 7 goals.

Personal

Marco Sturm is married with two children, son Mason Joseph and daughter Kaydie.
