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.
Pavol Demitra’s NHL journey started when he was drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the ninth round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. Throughout his NHL tenure, he played for various teams, including the St. Louis Blues, Minnesota Wild, Los Angeles Kings, and Vancouver Canucks.
On the international front, Demitra proudly represented Slovakia in numerous tournaments. He played in various World Championships, helping his country secure a gold medal in 2002. Additionally, he represented Slovakia in three Olympic Winter Games.

Dany Heatley is a Canadian-born winger. He was drafted second overall by the Atlanta Thrashers in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft and made his mark by winning the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year in 2002.
Heatley’s career with the Thrashers was marred by a tragic car crash in 2003, which resulted in the death of his teammate Dan Snyder and left Heatley seriously injured. Despite the setback, he returned to the ice and continued his career.
His time with the Senators was notable for reaching the 50-goal mark twice consecutively, a feat not achieved since Pavel Bure in 1999-2000. Over his NHL career, Heatley was selected for the NHL All-Star Game five times, playing in four of them. In his first All-Star Game appearance in 2003, he scored four goals and was named the All-Star Game MVP.
