We Challenge You To Name All These NHL Players In Under 2 Minutes

Out of all the major sports in North America, there's certainly an argument to be made that ice hockey is the most brutal out of the lot. Sure, the NFL produces some pretty stern tackles from time to time, but the outright fighting that we see in the NHL on a week to week basis just seems chaotic.

Anyway, we aren't here to talk about that - because instead, we're here to see how many of these National Hockey League players you can name. They're from both the past and the present, and in some instances, they even represent the future.

Some are almost certainly going to be harder than others, but for the most part, you shouldn't have too many issues with it (if you're a big hockey fan, that is).

Question 1

Who is this NHL player?

After multiple Stanley Cup wins, two Olympic gold medals and a World Cup triumph with Canada, you'd have to be a fool to try and insist that this man is not one of the greatest players to ever lace up his skates. We love him, and in a lot of ways, even his haters respect him.

Question 2

Who is this NHL player?

With the steely blue eyes of a man you don't want to mess with, this legend was able to replicate that tenacity on the rink. He was a two time Stanley Cup winner, but most of all, he's known for his physical nature and skilled technique throughout his entire game.

Question 3

Who is this NHL player?

The Great One. If you know hockey then you know this face, because he is essentially the Michael Jordan of the National Hockey League. He's the leader in goals, assists in points, holds over 50 league records, and has won four Stanley Cup titles. There will never be anyone like him again.

Question 4

Who is this NHL player?

This prolific scorer has risen to fame in the last decade or so, becoming a three-time Stanley Cup winner with his beloved Blackhawks. He also became the first US player to win the Art Ross Trophy, which gives you an idea of his overall skill level and clear, undeniable heart.

Question 5

Who is this NHL player?

This Blackhawks captain led his team to three Stanley Cup titles, and is also a Conn Smythe Trophy winner. We'd like to say there's more that you need to know about him than that, but this is one of those players that has a resume which speaks for itself - truly.

Question 6

Who is this NHL player?

With a beard like that, how could you not love the guy? In all seriousness, though, you don't become a six-time All-Star by sitting on the bench doing nothing. He was an Art Ross and Hart Trophy winner back in 2006, and we think he'll be playing until his legs don't work anymore.

Question 7

Who is this NHL player?

You may be more familiar with this guy's name due to his association with the How I Met Your Mother series, and that's okay. In terms of what he did on the ice, though, he was the highest scoring defensemen in the entire history of the NHL when he retired in 1936.

Question 8

Who is this NHL player?

This is one of those characters that just quietly goes about his business, creating history along the way. He won the Stanley Cup twice, the Selke Trophy three times, and became a Red Wings legend throughout the course of a really entertaining tenure in the world of ice hockey. What a dude.

Question 9

Who is this NHL player?

Big, strong and fast - three of the many words you could use to describe this gentleman. After becoming a three time Hart Trophy winner he is now also going to go down in the history books as a winner of the Stanley Cup, courtesy of the Capitals' run last year.

Question 10

Who is this NHL player?

The country of Russia has enjoyed success in a series of different sports, but when it comes to ice hockey, there are few better than this man. He became the leading scorer in both assists and points, and along the way, he managed to accumulate three Stanley Cup title wins.

Question 11

Who is this NHL player?

With a name like The Flower, you may not think this guy did much during his time in the sport, but you'd be oh so wrong. He was the first player to score at least 50 goals and 100 overall points in six consecutive seasons, and he won a massive five Stanley Cups.

Question 12

Who is this NHL player?

He once held a pretty cool record and had a nice tenure in the NHL, but let's be honest with ourselves here, this man is probably best known due to his son. The son in question is popular AEW and former WWE wrestler Chris Jericho, if that helps anyone at all.

Question 13

Who is this NHL player?

Aside from having a pretty cool name, this guy was also incredibly successful on the ice. He won four Stanley Cup titles, and managed to pick up the Norris Trophy an unbelievable seven times. No, that wasn't a typo, he really is just that good and that (in our opinion) underrated.

Question 14

Who is this NHL player?

When you have 10 seasons of picking up 100 points or more, you deserve the credit where it is due. He'll forever be known as one of the greatest players in the history of the league, and that's regardless of what he accomplishes outside of the National Hockey League itself.

Question 15

Who is this NHL player?

When you're the only man to win the Hart, Art Ross and Lady Byng in the same season, you know that you're a big deal. He was a pretty unassuming bloke throughout most of his run, but don't let that fool you, because he is still incredibly talented on that ice.

Question 16

Who is this NHL player?

They call him Superman and after watching a few of his games, it's not hard to understand why (even if he does slightly resemble the guy from Home Alone). He became the highest scoring US born player in the NHL during his run, which tells you all that you need to know.

Question 17

Who is this NHL player?

Some people are lucky enough to win one Stanley Cup title throughout their time in the sport, and every so often, you get folks that are able to win more than that. Nobody, however, has been able to surpass this guy: who, nicknamed as the Pocket Rocket, won an amazing 11 Stanley Cup titles.

Question 18

Who is this NHL player?

Is he an angry looking dude? Yes. Are we intimidated? You already know the answer to that question. This dominant defensive player won the Stanley Cup with the Ducks, with his most impressive accomplishment arguably coming on the international stage as he was able to capture two Olympic gold medals.

Question 19

Who is this NHL player?

This clutch goaltender is one of the best in the business in his position, and was able to win Stanley Cups with the Canadiens and the Avalanche. When the pressure is on and the stakes are raised, this is the kind of player you can rely on to do the job right.

Question 20

Who is this NHL player?

When you score 76 goals as a rookie you're always going to be remembered as a legend, and rightly so. This man won the Stanley Cup in 2007 to ensure he walked away from the game as a winner, and given the mark he left on the NHL, it's well deserved.

Question 21

Who is this NHL player?

He won two Stanley Cups as a player and two as an executive, which speaks volumes about his ability to transition in and out of roles. We best know him for his playing days, but to be honest, all of the things he's done deserve to be mentioned and recognised.

Question 22

Who is this NHL player?

He was called the Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb of hockey both in his prime and in the many years since then. He looks like the typical brawler player that we come across so often in the modern era, but upon further analysis, it's clear to see he is worth so much more than that.

Question 23

Who is this NHL player?

This hard working Maple Leafs captain is the definition of a team player, and that's forever how he should be remembered by his peers. He is perhaps best known for scoring a record breaking 10 points in a game, which is the kind of figure that most rookies can only dream of.

Question 24

Who is this NHL player?

Aside from having the name of someone that belongs in Game of Thrones, this absolute workhorse had a never say die attitude throughout his time in the National Hockey League. He won two Stanley Cup titles, both of which he was able to play a starring role in. Fair play.

Question 25

Who is this NHL player?

They call him Mr. Hockey, and whilst we aren't always big fans of nicknames in sport, this one fits the bill. His five-decade run kind of paved the way for a lot of players to reach for the sky and go after their dream of becoming a hockey player.

Question 26

Who is this NHL player?

He was full of class and was always on hand to help the team in any which way they required. He finished up with the second most assists in league history, and as we all know, there's a lot of love to be had for players that are that way inclined.

Question 27

Who is this NHL player?

Straight-faced? You betcha - but you absolutely shouldn't let that fool you. He may have transitioned into a slightly different role these days, but in his day, this man held the single-season record for goals by a defensemen. Oh, and did we mention he won the Stanley Cup three times?

Question 28

Who is this NHL player?

He appeared in three straight Stanley Cups with three different teams, and funnily enough, a lot of people won't even see that as an accomplishment. We do, though, because it showcases just how valuable he was to such high-level teams on a year to year basis. He should be proud of that.

Question 29

Who is this NHL player?

With the fourth most assists amongst those in his position this man isn't to be messed with, and he isn't to be underappreciated either. He's substantially better than most folks choose to give him credit for, and we'd like to think he'll be remembered as such in the years to come.

Question 30

Who is this NHL player?

This babyfaced assassin (no, not Ole Gunnar Solskjaer) was the first overall pick in the Draft, and at such a young age, he still has a long way to go and a lot left to learn in this sport. He'll be looked upon in years to come, hopefully, as an overwhelming success story.

Question 31

Who is this NHL player?

Representing Switzerland is the following number one overall Draft pick, and in our opinion, he's still a pretty exciting prospect. There are some things he needs to piece together but all in all, we're going to go out on a limb here (not really) and suggest that you keep an eye on him.

Question 32

Who is this NHL player?

This man went into the Hockey Hall of Fame back in 2011, and rightly so. He played for eight different organisations and had a strong run with many of them, but arguably the most interesting statistic of them all is the fact that he was only drafted as the 134th overall pick.

Question 33

Who is this NHL player?

Fourth leading goalscorer of all time - you'd best put some respect on this man's name. He is undeniably one of the best to ever lace up a pair of skates, and young hopefuls should analyse his work in future years in order to appreciate him for everything that he's done.

Question 34

Who is this NHL player?

This guy went into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2017, and back in 2011, he became the oldest player to score in the Finals at the age of 43. That gives you an idea of the longevity he had, which is easily one of the hardest traits to possess in this sport.

Question 35

Who is this NHL player?

The ultimate captain. He has three Stanley Cup titles to his name, but in our mind, he has about ten more than that. He just seemed to play with such elegance whenever he was out on the ice, and that can so often be a rarity in this wonderful sport.
