Gregory Pateryn (born June 20, 1990) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman, currently playing for the Minnesota Wild of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the fifth round, 128th overall, at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career

Amateur

As a youth, Pateryn played in the 2003 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with the Detroit Little Caesars minor ice hockey team.[1] Pateryn then attended Birmingham Brother Rice High School from 2004 to 2007, where he captain the hockey team.[2] For the 2007-08 season, Pateryn played with the Ohio Junior Blue Jackets in the United States Hockey League. He was later drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft after accumulating 27 points in 60 games.[3]

Pateryn then attended the University of Michigan, where he played four seasons of NCAA Division I college hockey with the Wolverines ice hockey team in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA).[2]

Professional

Pateryn's tenure as a prospect within the Maple Leafs was short lived, as on July 2, 2008, he was included in a trade by Toronto along with a second-round selection in the 2010 entry draft to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for forward Mikhail Grabovski.[4]

On March 28, 2012, the Canadiens signed Pateryn to a two-year, entry-level contract.[5] He made his debut with the Canadiens in the second half of the 2012-13 season,[6] going scoreless in three games.[]

On May 8, 2014, the Canadiens re-signed Pateryn to a two-year contract extension.[7] This was followed by an additional two-year extension on July 1, 2015.[8]

In the 2016-17 season, Pateryn made the opening night roster, solidifying his role as a depth defender among the Canadiens blueline. Having appeared in 24 games and approaching the NHL trade deadline, Pateryn was dealt by the Canadiens to the Dallas Stars along with a 4th round draft pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft for defenseman Jordie Benn on February 27, 2017.[9]

Pateryn as a free agent in the off-season, left the Stars and was rewarded with a three-year, $6.75 million contract with the Minnesota Wild on July 1, 2018.[10]

Personal life

Pateryn is of Ukrainian descent and is fluent in the language.[11]
