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 Tampa Bay Lightning.
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.
Jussi Jokinen is a retired Finnish forward. Jokinen was selected by the Dallas Stars in the sixth round, 192nd overall, in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. He made his NHL debut in the 2005–06 season with the Stars and quickly gained a reputation as a top shootout specialist in the league.
Jokinen’s NHL career spanned over 13 seasons, during which he played for nine teams. After his tenure with the Dallas Stars, he played for the Lightning, Hurricanes, Penguins, Panthers, Oilers, Kings, Blue Jackets, and Canucks.
His most productive season came in 2013–14 with the Pittsburgh Penguins, where he scored 21 goals and totaled 57 points in 81 games. In the 2017–18 season, he became the fourth player in NHL history to play for four different teams in a single season.
Dwayne Roloson went undrafted in the NHL but began his professional career in the minor leagues. He eventually worked his way up and made his NHL debut with the Calgary Flames in the mid-1990s.
Roloson’s journey in the NHL included stints with the Buffalo Sabres, Minnesota Wild, Edmonton Oilers, New York Islanders, and Tampa Bay Lightning.
One of the highlights of Roloson’s career was during the 2005-2006 season when he was traded to the Edmonton Oilers. He played a pivotal role in backstopping the Oilers to the Stanley Cup Finals, showcasing his ability to rise to the occasion in high-pressure situations.
Mike Smith’s NHL journey began with the Dallas Stars, who selected him in the fifth round of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. After a few seasons developing and playing backup in Dallas, Smith was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2008, where he assumed a larger role between the pipes.
In 2011, Smith signed with the Phoenix Coyotes (now the Arizona Coyotes), where he would enjoy some of his best years as a professional. In the 2011-2012 season, he played a pivotal role in leading the Coyotes to the Western Conference Finals, with standout performances throughout the playoffs.
After his tenure with the Coyotes, Smith joined the Calgary Flames in 2017 and later the Edmonton Oilers in 2019. With the Oilers, he showcased his veteran presence, helping stabilize the team’s goaltending situation.

Pat Maroon was drafted 161st overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2007 NHL Draft. Over the early part of his career, Maroon bounced between the NHL and the AHL, eventually establishing himself as a solid NHL player with the Anaheim Ducks where he spent several seasons.
Maroon’s career took a turn for the spectacular when he won three consecutive Stanley Cups with two different teams, a remarkable achievement in modern NHL.
He secured his first Cup with the St. Louis Blues in 2019 and then won back-to-back Cups with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2020 and 2021.
