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 Toronto Maple Leafs 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.
David Clarkson began his NHL career with the New Jersey Devils in 2006 after going undrafted. His breakout season came in 2011-12 when he scored 30 goals for the Devils, proving he could be more than just a physical force on the ice. This performance helped the Devils reach the Stanley Cup Finals that year.
In 2013, Clarkson signed a lucrative free-agent contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs, a move that came with high expectations given his recent success in New Jersey. However, his time in Toronto was marked by injuries and a struggle to replicate his earlier scoring prowess.
Clarkson’s contract was later traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets, but injuries continued to plague him, limiting his on-ice contributions. He officially ended his playing career in 2016.
Nick Foligno is a Canadian-American forward, drafted 28th overall by the Ottawa Senators in the 2006 NHL Draft. After playing several seasons with the Senators, he was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2012.
During his time with the Blue Jackets, Foligno developed into a reliable leader and scorer, eventually being named team captain in 2015. He became an essential part of the team’s core, contributing both offensively and as a leader in the locker room.
In 2021, Foligno was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in a move designed to bolster their playoff run, bringing his grit and experience to a team looking to make a deep postseason push.
Max Domi was selected 12th overall by the Phoenix Coyotes in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Domi’s career in the NHL began with the Arizona Coyotes (previously Phoenix), where he quickly made a name for himself. He scored his first NHL goal and assist in his debut against the Kings in 2015 and achieved his first career NHL hat trick in 2016 against the Oilers.
Domi’s journey in the NHL has seen him play for several teams. After the Coyotes, he was traded to the Canadiens in 2018. In Montreal, he achieved a significant milestone by scoring 72 points in the 2018-19 season, the first Canadiens player to do so since 2009-10.
In 2020, Domi moved to the Columbus Blue Jackets, followed by a trade to the Carolina Hurricanes in 2022. Domi then signed with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2022 and was traded to the Dallas Stars in 2023. As of July 2023, Domi joined the Toronto Maple Leafs on a one-year contract.
