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.
