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 Carolina Hurricanes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sylvain Cote is a Canadian-born player who had an impressive 19-season career in the NHL. His journey in the NHL predominantly featured his time with the Washington Capitals, but he also played for the Hartford Whalers (now Hurricanes), Toronto Maple Leafs, Chicago Blackhawks, and Dallas Stars.
Cote was first selected by the Hartford Whalers in the first round (#11 overall) of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft and went on to become an influential defenseman. He was an all-star selection at the 1986 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships and was part of the Dallas team that reached the Stanley Cup Finals in 2000.
Over his career, Cote played 1,171 NHL games, scoring 122 goals and assisting in 313, totaling 435 points, along with accumulating 545 penalty minutes and 102 playoff games with 11 goals, 22 assists, and 33 points.
