</div></div> Sean Hill (born February 14, 1970 in Duluth, Minnesota) is an American professional ice hockey player. He was most recently a defenseman for the Minnesota Wild in the NHL. He won the Stanley Cup in 1993 with the Montreal Canadiens. For the 2008/09 season he signed a contract with EHC Biel from Swiss National League.

Playing careerEdit

Hill was drafted in the 8th round, 167th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft from Wisconsin Badgers and was a member of the United States 1992 Winter Olympic Team. On October 8, 1993, Hill scored the first goal in the history of the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in a 2-7 loss to the Detroit Redwings. In August 2006 he signed a one year contract with the Islanders.


On April 20, 2007, Hill became the first player to be suspended for abusing the performance enhancing substance policy the NHL and NHLPA have put in place. Hill began the mandatory 20 game suspension in Game 5 of the Islanders' Eastern Conference Quarter-Final versus the Buffalo Sabres. The Islanders lost the game and were eliminated from the playoffs. Islanders General Manager Garth Snow said that he supported the league's decision to suspend Hill.[1] Hill, who was signed by the Minnesota Wild as a free agent in July 2007, would be required to sit out the first 19 games of the 2007/08 season without pay. In July, Hill passed both a lie detector test and independent drug test regarding his substance abuse.[citation needed] In a statement, the Wild said, "We believe Sean did not knowingly take any banned performance-enhancing substance."[2] Hill returned to the lineup on November 21, 2007, after completing the 20-game suspension.[2]
