Well, good news, I’m here to help.

Brian Boucher was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the first round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He began his NHL career with the Flyers, where he quickly made a mark during his rookie season by helping the team reach the Eastern Conference Finals in 2000.
Over his career, Boucher played for multiple teams, including the Phoenix Coyotes, Calgary Flames, Chicago Blackhawks, Columbus Blue Jackets, San Jose Sharks, and Carolina Hurricanes.
One of the standout moments of Boucher’s career was setting an NHL record for the longest shutout streak by a goaltender during the 2003-2004 season while playing for the Phoenix Coyotes. He went 332 minutes and 1 second without allowing a goal, a testament to his skill and focus.
Jack Johnson was selected 3rd overall by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2005 NHL Draft. He later made his NHL debut with the Los Angeles Kings during the 2006-2007 season. Known for his strong skating ability and physical play, Johnson became a steady presence on the blueline for various teams throughout his career.
He played for the Los Angeles Kings, Columbus Blue Jackets, Pittsburgh Penguins, and New York Rangers, accumulating points while contributing significantly in defensive roles.
His play has earned him recognition, including the opportunity to represent the United States in various international tournaments. Johnson’s play is characterized by a blend of offensive skill and defensive responsibility, making him a valuable asset to his teams over the years.
Seth Jones was drafted fourth overall by the Nashville Predators in the 2013 NHL Draft. He displayed considerable promise early in his career, demonstrating great poise and defensive prowess.
In January 2016, he was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets, where he blossomed into one of the NHL’s top defensemen, earning multiple selections to the NHL All-Star Game. His time with the Blue Jackets was marked by strong defensive play and an ability to contribute on the offensive end as well.
In 2021, he was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks, a move that was followed by him signing a significant contract extension with the team, illustrating the Blackhawks’ belief in his abilities and the central role they envision for him in the team’s future.
