The Finnish superstar’s career began with Winnipeg in 1992, but his legacy was built with the Ducks. No player from Finland has recorded more NHL goals (684) or points (1,457) than Selanne. He played parts of 15 seasons with the Anaheim Ducks, and helped them win a Stanley Cup in 2007. His popular No. 8 was retired by the team in 2015.

This is somewhat of a tough one when taking into account that the current day Coyotes’ franchise began its NHL existence as the Winnipeg Jets in 1979. Dale Hawerchuk was one of the game’s greats with the Jets, but Doan is synonymous with the Coyotes brand. Doan, who began his career with the team in Winnipeg, racked up 972 points and more than 400 goals while playing all 21 of his seasons with the same organization.
