If I’m right, that also means that today’s grid is asking for players who have played for both the Edmonton Oilers 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.
Jesse Puljujarvi, a Swedish-born Finnish player, has had a noteworthy career in the NHL. Drafted fourth overall by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, Puljujarvi was regarded as a top prospect. However, after 28 games, he was sent down to the Oilers’ AHL affiliate, the Bakersfield Condors, for further development.
Puljujärvi’s journey in the NHL involved a significant amount of time moving between the NHL and AHL squads. He marked a career-high three-point game in January 2018 against the Vancouver Canucks.
In August 2019, he returned to play for Oulun Karpat in Finland, although the Edmonton Oilers retained his NHL rights. After holding out from the Oilers for a year, Puljujarvi re-signed with the team in October 2020. He continued with the Oilers until February 2023, when he was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Patrik Puistola
