Blake Coleman was selected in the 3rd round, 75th overall, by the New Jersey Devils in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. He made his NHL debut during the 2016–2017 season with the Devils and gained a reputation as a gritty, two-way forward.
Coleman won back-to-back Stanley Cup championships with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2020 and 2021. Known for his penalty-killing abilities and knack for scoring short-handed goals, he has become a valuable role player in the league.
Coleman has played for 3 teams in his 7-year career – the Devils, Lightning and Flames. His contributions on both ends of the ice make him an important asset for any team he plays for.

Dave Andreychuk had a distinguished career in the NHL, known especially for his goal-scoring prowess and leadership. His career spanned over two decades, during which he played for several teams including the Sabres, Maple Leafs, Devils, Bruins, Avalanche and Lightning.
One of the highlights of his career came later in his tenure with the Tampa Bay Lightning, where he served as the team captain. Under his leadership, the Lightning won the Stanley Cup in 2004.

Andreychuk retired as one of the highest-scoring left-wingers in NHL history, holding the record for most career power-play goals for some time. His longevity in the league, consistent scoring ability, and leadership on and off the ice were hallmarks of his career.
