MSG Networks will honor former New Jersey Devils star defenseman Scott Niedermayer by telecasting five of his greatest games starting Monday, December 5 at 8:00 p.m. on MSG Plus leading up to the retirement of his No. 27 jersey by the Devils on “Scott Niedermayer Night” on Friday, December 16.

The five games will be hosted by MSG Plus and Devils play-by-play man Steve Cangialosi and former Devils star and MSG Networks analyst Ken Daneyko as they discuss the significance of each game in Niedermayer’s career.

“Scott obviously had the dramatics for scoring a big goal and setting up a goal with an assist, but what was special about him was that he could control the whole tempo of a game,” says Daneyko, a teammate of Niedermayer’s for 11 seasons, in Monday’s episode “Not many defensemen could do that and Scott Niedermayer was one of the best at it.”

The five games in the series – all on MSG Plus at 8:00 p.m. – include:

• Monday, December 5: Bruins at Devils (10/20/01) – Niedermayer scores OT winner

• Wednesday, December 7: 2000 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, Panthers at Devils (4/16/00) – Niedermayer scores short-handed goal

• Friday, December 9: 2003 Eastern Conference Semifinals, Lightning at Devils (5/2/03) – Devils advance to Finals

• Monday, December 12: 1995 Eastern Conference Finals, Devils at Red Wings (6/20/95) – Niedermayer ties the game in the 3rd period

• Wednesday, December 14: 2000 Stanley Cup Finals, Devils at Stars (6/10/2000) – Niedermayer scores short-handed goal and Devils win Cup in 2nd OT

On Friday, December 16 the Devils will retire Niedermayer’s No. 27 jersey before the team hosts the Dallas Stars. MSG Plus will have special coverage of the evening, starting with a pre-game show at 6:30 p.m., which will include the ceremony.

“After winning three Stanley Cups, I don’t know how you can separate one from another,” said Niedermayer when asked about his proudest moment with the Devils. “Those were some very special moments, and when you get a chance to look back and understand how much hard work went into it, you realize that it really takes a team to win.”

Niedermayer, who was drafted in the first round by New Jersey in 1991 and retired from professional hockey in 2010, won three Stanley Cups with the Devils in 1995, 2000 and 2003. Niedermayer is one of the most decorated players in hockey history and is the only player to win every major championship in the sport. During a career spanning two decades, he won a total of four Stanley Cups, two Olympic gold medals, the World Cup, the Memorial Cup, the IIHF World Championship and the World Junior Championship.
