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 Calgary Flames and the Columbus Blue Jackets.
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.
Erik Gudbranson is a Canadian defenseman, known for his physical style of play and his defensive abilities. He was drafted third overall by the Florida Panthers in the 2010 NHL Draft.
During his early career with the Panthers, Gudbranson established himself as a tough, physical defenseman, often taking on a role that emphasized defensive responsibilities over offensive production.
Over the years, Gudbranson has been a bit of a journeyman, playing for several teams including the Vancouver Canucks, Pittsburgh Penguins, Anaheim Ducks, Ottawa Senators, Nashville Predators, Calgary Flames and Columbus Blue Jackets.
Blake Comeau is a Canadian right winger, currently an unrestricted free agent in the NHL. Selected 47th overall by the New York Islanders in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Comeau played five seasons with the Islanders.
Comeau’s NHL journey saw him moving to various teams. In July 2015, Comeau signed a three-year contract with the Colorado Avalanche, where he became a vital part of their penalty-killing unit. During his time with the Avalanche, he achieved a career-best of 24 assists for 36 points in 81 games.
Comeau later joined the Dallas Stars on a three-year, $7.2 million contract in July 2018. He was made an alternate captain in February 2020 and re-signed with the Stars for the 2021-22 season.
Dalton Prout is a Canadian former defenseman, primarily known for his time with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Selected 154th overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft by the Blue Jackets, Prout made his NHL debut on March 30, 2012, against the Florida Panthers.
During the 2016-17 season, his time with the Blue Jackets concluded, and he was traded to the New Jersey Devils. Prout played for the Devils before being traded to the Calgary Flames and then signed as a free agent with the San Jose Sharks.
Unfortunately, his career was impacted by injuries, including concussions. Over his NHL career, Prout played in 264 games, scoring 7 goals and 31 assists for a total of 38 points.
