If you add WHA goals (and all three of these had them), your new top three are Howe, Gretzky, Bobby Hull.

Thanks for the update! Just a note, I think it's more common to see MNS for the Minnesota North Stars, with MIN referring to the Minnesota Wild.

Agreed, though once Gaborik didn't show up when entered, there's no one else from the Wild that would be close. I mainly had trouble remembering how to spell those french canadian names!

I only thought I was a good speller. I'm looking at you Luc, Alexi and Dave.

Wasn't expecting to do well on this but disappointed I forgot Jagr and Messier. Should've gotten those. Managed to get 8 - worth 1 point.

Don’t know anything about ice hockey. It was Gretzky and out for me

Gretzky is the league's all-time leading goal scorer, and if you wiped out every goal he ever scored, he'd still be the league's all-time points leader based on assists alone. He was as dominant a player in a team sport as there's ever been.

Him and Don Bradman.

The NHL lists Marian Hossa as still active, even though he hasn’t played since 2017.

Been watching hockey since mid 90's, never ever heard of Norm Ullman. Not even once mentioned by anyone on TV

Wings fan here...he gets lost, for sure. The fact that he started playing for the Wings and Leafs the season they stopped winning Cups after stretches of dominance sucks for him, and is probably why he isn't more remembered, despite being objectively great.

I forgot Gretzky, for some reason I thought I had already wrote his name.

Fun fact: 1/5 of these players laced up their skates for the Pittsburgh Penguins at some point in their careers.

I don't know why, but I can never remember Mark Recchi. I draw a blank on him on any quiz he is on.
