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 Vegas Golden Knights and the Carolina Hurricanes.
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.
Max Pacioretty is an American-born left winger currently playing for the Washington Capitals in the NHL. Drafted in the first round, 22nd overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens, Pacioretty emerged as a key player for the team.
He captained the Canadiens for his last three seasons with them and scored 30 or more goals in five seasons. He was traded to the Vegas Golden Knights before the 2018–19 NHL season, revitalizing his career before being dealt to the Carolina Hurricanes four seasons later due to salary cap complications.
During the 2011–12 season, Pacioretty led the Canadiens in points, finishing with a career-high 33 goals and 32 assists in 79 games, and won the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey.
Paul Stastny, a Canadian-born center, had an illustrious 17-season career in the NHL. He played for the Avalanche, Blues, Jets, Golden Knights, and Carolina Hurricanes. His rookie NHL season with the Avalanche in 2006-07 was remarkable, scoring 78 points in 82 games and earning a Calder Memorial Trophy nomination.
In 2007-08, he was named to his first NHL All-Star Game but missed playing due to an appendectomy.
Stastny played in his 1,000th career NHL game in 2021, surpassing his father’s record, and in the 2021-22 season, he was a key veteran presence for the Jets, scoring his 500th NHL career assist.
