Full List of HUT Legends
- Wayne Gretzky
Quite simply the best player to ever lace them up. When you consider that he had more assists (1,963) than anyone had points, it really puts his offensive dominance into perspective. Take control of The Great One, only in Hockey Ultimate Team.
- Mario Lemieux
With an unparalleled combination of size, speed and skill, Lemieux was arguably the most physically talented hockey player to ever play the game. Experience why they called him Super Mario.
- Patrick Roy
With three Conn Smythe Trophies and the most playoff wins of all-time, it’s not hard to see why many consider Roy the greatest goalie of all time. His impact on the goaltending world can still be felt today, as he popularized the butterfly style used by most goaltenders today.
- Ray Bourque
The highest scoring defenseman of all-time threw over 6,000 pucks in the net during his NHL career, with many of those bulging the twine.
- Joe Sakic
Burnaby Joe will go down as one of the best players and captains of this generation. He surpassed the 100 point plateau six times in his NHL career and won two Stanley Cup® Championships. Unleash Sakic’s world-class wrist shot on helpless opponents in HUT.
- Nicklas Lidstrom
He made it look easy. With extraordinary awareness, stick work and positioning, Lidstrom was dominant on the defensive side of the puck. The seven-time Norris Trophy winner would be a perfect fit for any team.
- Pavel Bure
When Bure was on the ice, it looked like a video game. It wasn’t just his explosiveness that separated him from the rest; it was his ability to pull off high-skill plays at incredible speed that made him almost impossible to stop.
- Eric Lindros
For a period of time in the 1990’s Eric Lindros was the most physically dominant player in the NHL. At 6’4” and 240 pounds, ‘The Big E’ could punish you on the ice and the scoreboard.
- Mike Bossy
During his era, Bossy was the best pure goal scorer the NHL had ever seen. He is the fastest player to score 100 goals and is still the record holder for most goals-per-game.
- Luc Robitaille
Lucky Luc wasn’t the fastest skater or the most gifted player on the ice, but he always had a knack for being in the right spot at the right time. He still stands as the NHL’s highest scoring left winger of all-time.
- Mike Modano
Drafted 1st overall in 1988 by the Minnesota North Stars, Modano lived up to the hype. He was one of the best skaters of his time and a prolific goal scorer – finishing his career as the highest scoring American-born player in NHL history.
- Jari Kurri
Kurri was an integral part of the Edmonton Oilers dynasty in the 1980’s and was known as Gretzky’s right-hand man. He finished his career as the highest scoring European player in NHL history with 601 goals and 797 assists.
- Doug Gilmour
A fan favorite wherever he played, Gilmour was nicknamed ‘Killer’ because of his physical style of play despite his small stature. He played a complete game and is a perfect fit anywhere in your HUT lineup.
