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 St Louis Blues and the Tampa Bay Lightning.
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.
Mike Sillinger is a player known for his journeyman career in the NHL. Over the course of his tenure in the league, Sillinger earned the unique distinction of playing for a record 12 different NHL teams, the most by any player in league history. This constant movement earned him the nickname of the “NHL’s most traded player.”
Sillinger started his NHL career after being drafted 11th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. While he showcased skill and versatility as a center, he frequently found himself on the move, transitioning between teams either through trades or free agency.
Despite the frequent relocations, Sillinger was consistently productive wherever he played. Over his 1,049 NHL games, he accumulated 548 points, proving his value as a reliable two-way forward.
Pat Maroon was drafted 161st overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2007 NHL Draft. Over the early part of his career, Maroon bounced between the NHL and the AHL, eventually establishing himself as a solid NHL player with the Anaheim Ducks where he spent several seasons.
Maroon’s career took a turn for the spectacular when he won three consecutive Stanley Cups with two different teams, a remarkable achievement in modern NHL.
He secured his first Cup with the St. Louis Blues in 2019 and then won back-to-back Cups with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2020 and 2021.

In 2017, Bishop was traded to the Dallas Stars, where he continued to be a key player, helping guide the team to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2020. Over his career, Bishop earned multiple selections to the NHL All-Star Game.
