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.
Matt Duchene, drafted third overall by the Colorado Avalanche in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, quickly established himself as a skilled and versatile forward in the league. His time with the Avalanche was marked by consistent scoring prowess and the ability to play effectively as both a center and a winger.
Duchene’s NHL journey saw him moving from the Avalanche to the Ottawa Senators in a multi-team trade during the 2017-2018 season, followed by a brief tenure with the Columbus Blue Jackets during the 2018-2019 season. He later signed as a free agent with the Nashville Predators, and is currently (as of Nov 2023) with the Dallas Stars.
Internationally, Duchene has represented Canada in the World Junior Championships, World Championships, and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, where he was part of the gold medal-winning team. His offensive abilities have not only earned him selections to NHL All-Star Games but have also consistently placed him among the top point producers on his teams.

Derek Roy is a Canadian former centre who had an illustrious NHL career with teams like the Buffalo Sabres, Dallas Stars, Vancouver Canucks, St. Louis Blues, Nashville Predators, and Edmonton Oilers. He was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the second round of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
Roy made his NHL debut with the Sabres in the 2003-04 season, following a point-per-game performance in the AHL with the Rochester Americans. His NHL career was marked by consistent performance, including scoring the fastest goal to start a playoff game in Sabres history.
However, his time with the Sabres was marred by a torn quad tendon in the 2010-11 season. Roy was later traded to the Dallas Stars and subsequently to the Vancouver Canucks, St. Louis Blues, and Nashville Predators. His NHL career concluded with the Edmonton Oilers.
James Neal, a Canadian winger, has played for several teams in the NHL, including the Dallas Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins, Nashville Predators, Vegas Golden Knights, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, and St. Louis Blues.
Selected 33rd overall by the Dallas Stars in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Neal started his NHL career with Dallas in the 2008–09 season. During his time with the Penguins, he had a breakout season in 2011–12, finishing with 40 goals and 81 points, including a career-first playoff hat-trick in 2013.
Neal was traded to the Nashville Predators in 2014, where he continued his robust performance, and then was selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft. Neal’s career statistics in the NHL include 869 games with 296 goals, 263 assists, and 559 points.
