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 Edmonton Oilers and the Winnipeg Jets.
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.
Evander Kane started his NHL journey with the Atlanta Thrashers, who selected him 4th overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. With the Thrashers’ relocation to Winnipeg in 2011, he became a key player for the newly-minted Winnipeg Jets. His tenure in Winnipeg was marked by both on-ice successes and off-ice controversies.
In 2015, Kane was traded to the Buffalo Sabres, where he continued to demonstrate his scoring touch. His time with Buffalo allowed him to further establish himself as a top-six forward, often leading the team in goals.
A trade in 2018 saw Kane join the San Jose Sharks. In San Jose, he became a pivotal player, often featuring on the team’s top lines and contributing significantly during their playoff runs. Kane signed as a free agent with the Oilers in 2022 and has spent the last two seasons in Edmonton.
Sam Gagner, a Canadian-born player, has established himself as a versatile and skilled forward in the NHL. Drafted 6th overall by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Gagner made an immediate impact in the league, showcasing his offensive talents and playmaking abilities.
He gained significant attention early in his career for tying an Oilers record with an eight-point game (four goals and four assists) in February 2012, a feat that underscored his offensive capabilities. Gagner’s skill set includes excellent vision on the ice, strong puck-handling skills, and the ability to play both center and wing effectively.
Over the course of his career, Gagner has played for several NHL teams, including the Coyotes, Flyers, Blue Jackets, Canucks, Red Wings, and a return stint with the Oilers. His role has evolved over the years from a primary scorer to a more versatile player capable of contributing in various situations, including special teams and in a leadership capacity.
