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 Detroit Red Wings and the Philadelphia Flyers.
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.
Mike Sillinger is a player known for his journeyman career in the NHL. Over the course of his tenure in the league, Sillinger earned the unique distinction of playing for a record 12 different NHL teams, the most by any player in league history. This constant movement earned him the nickname of the “NHL’s most traded player.”
Sillinger started his NHL career after being drafted 11th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. While he showcased skill and versatility as a center, he frequently found himself on the move, transitioning between teams either through trades or free agency.
Despite the frequent relocations, Sillinger was consistently productive wherever he played. Over his 1,049 NHL games, he accumulated 548 points, proving his value as a reliable two-way forward.
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.
Ulf Samuelsson began his NHL career after being drafted by the Hartford Whalers in the fourth round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. Over his 16-season NHL career, he played for several teams, including the Whalers, Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings, and Philadelphia Flyers.
With the Penguins, Samuelsson was a key component of their back-to-back Stanley Cup-winning teams in 1991 and 1992.
While he was a reliable defenseman with solid puck-moving skills, Samuelsson was often in the spotlight for his hard-hitting style of play, which occasionally straddled the line between aggressive and injurious. He was involved in various on-ice incidents that made him a polarizing figure among fans and players.
