My guess is you’ve searched this page out because you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.
If I’m right, that also means that today’s grid is asking for players who have played for both the Chicago Blackhawks and the Arizona Coyotes.
And, I’m also guessing that you’re a little stuck on this particular square and you’re looking for a little help to keep your grid immaculate. Sound about right so far?
Well, good news, I’m here to help.
I’ve already done the research and have put together a list of well-known stars along with some more “under-the-radar” players that could land you a low rarity score.
Dylan Strome is a Canadian professional ice hockey center who was drafted 3rd overall by the Arizona Coyotes in the 2015 NHL Draft. Despite high expectations, Strome had difficulty establishing himself with the Coyotes and split time between the NHL and AHL in his early career.
In a move to rejuvenate his career, Strome was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in 2018. With the Blackhawks, he found a more consistent role and began to produce offensively at a more expected level. Strome’s skill as a playmaker and his offensive instincts started to shine through as he became a regular in the Blackhawks’ lineup.
Strome most recently played for the Washington Capitals, recording his most successful season (at least statistically) in 2022-23 with 23 goals and 65 points.
Max Domi was selected 12th overall by the Phoenix Coyotes in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Domi’s career in the NHL began with the Arizona Coyotes (previously Phoenix), where he quickly made a name for himself. He scored his first NHL goal and assist in his debut against the Kings in 2015 and achieved his first career NHL hat trick in 2016 against the Oilers.
Domi’s journey in the NHL has seen him play for several teams. After the Coyotes, he was traded to the Canadiens in 2018. In Montreal, he achieved a significant milestone by scoring 72 points in the 2018-19 season, the first Canadiens player to do so since 2009-10.
In 2020, Domi moved to the Columbus Blue Jackets, followed by a trade to the Carolina Hurricanes in 2022. Domi then signed with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2022 and was traded to the Dallas Stars in 2023. As of July 2023, Domi joined the Toronto Maple Leafs on a one-year contract.
Jeremy Roenick was selected 8th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. Playing for the Blackhawks, Coyotes, Flyers, Kings, and Sharks, Roenick became one of the most productive and exciting forwards of his era.
Over the course of his 20-season NHL career, Roenick scored 513 goals, 703 assists, and 1,216 points in 1,363 regular-season games. He reached the 50-goal mark twice in his career and had three 100-point seasons.
In the postseason, Roenick added 53 goals and 69 assists in 154 games. Despite his individual success, he never won a Stanley Cup, although he reached the finals with the Blackhawks in 1992.
Roenick Key Stats
- 100+ Point Season (Blackhawks)

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.
Andrew Ladd, a Canadian-born player, had a solid career in the NHL. Ladd was selected by the Carolina Hurricanes in the first round, fourth overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He was part of their Stanley Cup-winning team in 2006, contributing to the team’s success as a young player.
Following his time with the Hurricanes, Ladd played for several other NHL teams. He was traded to the Blackhawks, where he won another Stanley Cup in 2010, further showcasing his ability to contribute significantly to championship-caliber teams. Ladd’s career also included stints with the Atlanta Thrashers/Winnipeg Jets and the New York Islanders.
Ladd’s role on his teams often extended beyond scoring, as he was also valued for his physical play and ability to play a two-way game.
Todd Simpson is a Canadian player whose career spanned over a decade in the NHL. His journey in ice hockey began at Brown University and continued in Canadian junior hockey with the Tri-City Americans and Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League (WHL).
Simpson’s professional career started in 1994 with the Calgary Flames, where he remained until 1999. He then moved to the Florida Panthers for the 1999–2000 NHL season, followed by a trade to the Phoenix Coyotes. He then played for the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, where he scored a career-high four goals, and later for the Ottawa Senators.
