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 that have played for both the San Jose Sharks and the Arizona Coyotes.
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.
Ryan Dzingel was selected in the 7th round, 204th overall, by the Ottawa Senators in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. After a successful collegiate career at Ohio State University, he made his NHL debut with the Senators during the 2015-2016 season.
Over the next few years, Dzingel’s offensive production steadily increased, and he established himself as a reliable forward for Ottawa. However, the next few years of his career saw Dzingel changing zip codes quite often.
In 2019, he was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets, and later that year, he signed as a free agent with the Carolina Hurricanes. After a stint with the Hurricanes, Dzingel returned to the Senators in 2021. He then made quick stops with the Coyotes and Sharks.
Brian Boucher was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the first round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He began his NHL career with the Flyers, where he quickly made a mark during his rookie season by helping the team reach the Eastern Conference Finals in 2000.
Over his career, Boucher played for multiple teams, including the Phoenix Coyotes, Calgary Flames, Chicago Blackhawks, Columbus Blue Jackets, San Jose Sharks, and Carolina Hurricanes.
One of the standout moments of Boucher’s career was setting an NHL record for the longest shutout streak by a goaltender during the 2003-2004 season while playing for the Phoenix Coyotes. He went 332 minutes and 1 second without allowing a goal, a testament to his skill and focus.
Owen Nolan was selected first overall by the Quebec Nordiques in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. He played with the Nordiques before the franchise relocated, becoming the Colorado Avalanche.
However, Nolan is perhaps best remembered for his tenure with the San Jose Sharks, where he served as team captain and became one of the franchise’s key players during the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Nolan also suited up for the Maple Leafs, Coyotes, Flames, and the Wild. Throughout his career, he registered over 400 goals and 850 points. On the international stage, Nolan represented his native Canada, and he had the honor of winning a gold medal with Team Canada in the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics.

Thomas Greiss was selected by the San Jose Sharks in the third round, 94th overall, in the 2004 NHL Draft. He spent his early career as a backup goaltender for the Sharks, establishing himself as a reliable option in net. After his time in San Jose, Greiss played for the Coyotes and the Penguins.
In 2015, Greiss signed with the New York Islanders, where he took on a more prominent role. He helped lead the team to the playoffs and became known for his calm demeanor and consistent play. Greiss later joined the Detroit Red Wings, continuing his career as a valuable veteran presence in the net.
Throughout his time in the NHL, Greiss is well-known for his technical proficiency and poise, providing steady goaltending for the teams he has played for. His career statistics reflect this, with a save percentage typically hovering around the .910 mark.
Jeremy Roenick was selected 8th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. Playing for the Blackhawks, Coyotes, Flyers, Kings, and Sharks, Roenick became one of the most productive and exciting forwards of his era.
Over the course of his 20-season NHL career, Roenick scored 513 goals, 703 assists, and 1,216 points in 1,363 regular-season games. He reached the 50-goal mark twice in his career and had three 100-point seasons.
In the postseason, Roenick added 53 goals and 69 assists in 154 games. Despite his individual success, he never won a Stanley Cup, although he reached the finals with the Blackhawks in 1992.

Devan Dubnyk was drafted 14th overall by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, marking the start of his NHL career. Over his NHL career, Dubnyk played for several teams, including the Oilers, Nashville Predators, Arizona Coyotes, Minnesota Wild, San Jose Sharks, and Colorado Avalanche.
Dubnyk’s most notable achievements came during his time with the Minnesota Wild. He was traded to the Wild in 2015 and immediately became the team’s starter, setting a franchise record with 38 consecutive starts and helping the team clinch a playoff berth.
His performance in the 2014-15 season earned him a nomination for the Vezina Trophy and the Bill Masterton Trophy, the latter of which he won for his contributions to the team and career resurgence. Over his NHL career, Dubnyk played 542 games, recording 253 wins, 206 losses, a 2.61 goals-against average, and a .914 save percentage.
