</div></div> Joe Corvo (born June 20 1977, in Oak Park, Illinois) is a professional ice hockey player who currently plays for the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League. Corvo was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the 4th round of the 1997 NHL draft.

Playing careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Medal record
Men's Ice hockey
World Junior Championships
Silver 1997 Geneva Ice hockey

In one of Corvo's first major ice hockey appearances, he participated in the 1997 World Junior Championships in Switzerland. Despite placing second to Canada in the medal round, he was named the top defenseman of the tournament.[1] He then played for three seasons at Western Michigan University, from 1995 to 1998, where he was a teammate of future NHL player Jamal Mayers.

NHL careerEdit

He was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the 4th round of the 1997 NHL entry draft. On July 1, 2006, Corvo signed as a four-year, unrestricted free agent contract with the Ottawa Senators worth $10.5 million. On October 26, 2006, he broke a Senators record for points for a defenseman in a game with one goal and four assists against the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was named the game's first star. On February 11, 2008, the Senators traded Corvo along with Patrick Eaves to the Carolina Hurricanes for Mike Commodore and Cory Stillman. His departure from the Senators has stirred some controversy in Ottawa in the similar vein of Chris Pronger when Pronger demanded a trade from Edmonton.

Corvo recorded his first career hat-trick on March 16, 2008 against the Ottawa Senators' Martin Gerber at RBC Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. This was the first time that Corvo had played against his ex-team since the trade nearly a month earlier. Corvo became only the third defenseman in Hartford Whalers-Carolina Hurricanes franchise history to record a hat-trick.[2]

Restaurant incidentEdit

Corvo was arrested in November 2002 in Boston after he grabbed a 34-year-old woman's buttocks in a restaurant. Restaurant staff told him to leave, but Corvo returned, punched the woman and then kicked her when she fell to the ground, police said. Corvo was given a three-year suspended sentence after he pleaded guilty to assault. Corvo was also suspended for three games by the Kings.[3]

PersonalEdit

Joe is married to Angela Corvo.
