Mike Sillinger

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.

Dominik Hasek

Dominik Hasek was drafted 199th overall in the tenth round of the 1983 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks. A Czech goaltender, Hasek is considered one of the greatest goaltenders in the history of the NHL.

Hasek’s NHL career took off when he joined the Buffalo Sabres, where he became a starter and earned the nickname “The Dominator.” During his time with the Sabres, he won the Hart Trophy as the league’s most valuable player twice (1997, 1998) and the Vezina Trophy as the top goaltender six times.

In 2002, he won a Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings, and he added another Cup with the Red Wings in 2008. Over his career, Hasek played in 735 regular-season games, posting a .922 save percentage and a 2.20 goals-against average.

Hossa also played with the Penguins and the Red Wings, reaching the Stanley Cup Finals with both teams in consecutive years, although falling short on both times. However, Hossa’s pursuit of a Stanley Cup championship was realized when he joined the Blackhawks, helping the team secure three Stanley Cup championships.
