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.
Ulf Samuelsson began his NHL career after being drafted by the Hartford Whalers in the fourth round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. Over his 16-season NHL career, he played for several teams, including the Whalers, Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings, and Philadelphia Flyers.
With the Penguins, Samuelsson was a key component of their back-to-back Stanley Cup-winning teams in 1991 and 1992.
While he was a reliable defenseman with solid puck-moving skills, Samuelsson was often in the spotlight for his hard-hitting style of play, which occasionally straddled the line between aggressive and injurious. He was involved in various on-ice incidents that made him a polarizing figure among fans and players.
Jaromír Jagr was drafted 5th overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft, Jagr swiftly made an impression. Alongside center Mario Lemieux, Jagr played a pivotal role in back-to-back Stanley Cup championships for the Penguins in 1991 and 1992. His time with Pittsburgh also included multiple scoring titles and an MVP.
Jagr’s NHL journey included playing for several teams such as the Capitals, Rangers, Flyers, Stars, Bruins, Devils, Panthers, and Flames. Across these stints, his scoring touch and on-ice intelligence never waned. Jagr finished his career ranked second in NHL all-time points (1921), behind only Wayne Gretzky.
But Jagr’s contributions to the game extend beyond the NHL. He has been an essential figure for the Czech national team, securing a gold medal in the 1998 Winter Olympics and multiple World Championships.

Justin Braun was selected in the 7th round, 201st overall, by the San Jose Sharks in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
Throughout his career, Braun has established himself as a dependable defenseman, often contributing in both offensive and defensive zones. While not particularly known for his scoring, his awareness, physical play, and shot-blocking ability have made him an integral part of his team’s defensive corps.
