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 Ottawa Senators.
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.
Dion Phaneuf was selected ninth overall by the Calgary Flames in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He quickly established himself as one of the league’s top young defensemen, finishing third for the Calder Trophy (Rookie of the Year) in his debut season.
During his tenure with the Flames, he became renowned for his hard hits and ability to quarterback the power play. In 2010, Phaneuf was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, where he was soon named team captain.
After the Leafs, Phaneuf had stints with the Ottawa Senators and Los Angeles Kings. His time with the Senators included a deep playoff run in 2017, where the team reached the Eastern Conference Finals.
