John Badduke (born June 21, 1972) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player.

Playing career[edit]

Badduke played five seasons (1988–1993) of major junior hockey in the Western Hockey League. Following his amateur career, Badduke went on to play seven seasons in the professional minor leagues. In his rookie season he played with three different teams in three different leagues, including the Hamilton Canucks of the American Hockey League (AHL). Despite playing only 55 AHL games, Badduke earned the 1993–94 title as the AHL's most penalized player with 356 penalty minutes.

The Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League (AHL), following a fan vote during the 1998–99 AHL season, raised a banner in honour of fan favourite #14 John Badduke.[1] It is not retired, as it would later be worn by former USA Olympian Darby Hendrickson and Serge Aubin. In recent years, the number has remained on the shelf out of respect for Badduke and the honour given to him by the Syracuse fans.
