DALLAS – APRIL 15: Right wing Bill Guerin /

5. Bill Guerin, Worcester: New Jersey Devils, Edmonton Oilers, Boston Bruins, Dallas Stars, St. Louis Blues, San Jose Sharks, New York Islanders, Pittsburgh Penguins 1991 – 2010

Bill Guerin. Longevity. Both those things go hand in hand. He appeared in 1,263 games and tallied 856 points as a right winger.

He won Stanley Cups in two different decades with wins in 1995 for the Devils and 2009 for the Penguins. In 2009 he had a career best 15 playoff points, with 7 goals and 8 assists.

4. Tony Amonte, Hingham: New York Rangers, Chicago Blackhawks, Phoenix Coyotes, Philadelphia Flyers, Calgary Flames 1991 – 2007

Amonte had longevity like Bill Guerin, but he was able to score a bit more. He appeared in over 1,100 games and finished with an even 900 career NHL points.

Tony was a 60+ point scorer in his peak, with a career best 84 in 1999-00 for the Blackhawks. He had more than 60 points in 9 of his 15 seasons. Though he was routinely nominated for awards and was in the all-star picture, he never claimed either surprisingly.
