Mark Recchi is a Canadian winger on the Boston Bruins.

Recchi was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1988, after playing junior hockey in the WHL. He won his first Stanley Cup with the Penguins in 1991, scoring 113 points in his second full season with the team. In 1992, he was traded to Philadelphia, where he continued to make a name for himself as a premier power forward. He had a career high 123 points with the Flyers in 1992-93, but never won the Cup with the Flyers. In 1995, he was traded to Montreal, where he would spend the next 4 seasons. He then returned to Philadelphia, where he played in the Eastern Conference Finals twice over the next four seasons. In 2004, he signed with another of his former teams, the Pittsburgh Penguins, but was traded to Carolina near the end of 2006, and went on to win his second Stanley Cup. He would then re-sign with the Penguins, and scored 68 points in 2006-07. He was placed on waivers partway through the next season and was acquired by Atlanta. In 2008, he signed with Tampa Bay, but was traded to Boston at the trade deadline, in hopes of adding veteran experience to their playoff roster. Recchi has been an NHL All-star seven times.

Recchi played for Team Canada at the 1998 Olympics, but did not medal.
