Top 10 European Hockey Players

The greatest European ice hockey players of all-time!

The Top Ten

1 Jaromir Jagr

Best European hockey player by far. 1638 points (659 goals and 979 assists) as of 02-12-2012. He is one of a small group of hockey players to have won the Stanley Cup, Olympic Gold Medal and World Championship (Triple Gold Club). Jagr received several awards and holds several NHL records such as Most regular season points by a European born and trained player 149, Most regular season points by a player born outside of Canada 149, Most all-time regular season points by a European born and trained player 1638, Most all-time regular season goals by a European born and trained player 659, Most all-time overtime goals 15, Most consecutive 30-goal seasons 15, Most consecutive 70-or-more point seasons 16, etc.

Simply put the best European to have ever played. Durable, a leader, goal scorer, playmaker, the list goes on.

Jaromir is good combination to ice from hole, super speed and popularity.

Mmm from 1980 - 2001 only 3 players in the NHL won the scoring title Mario Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky and Jaromir Jagr... enough said to be put in with those 2 guys when nobody else in the NHL could says it all!

2 Teemu Selanne

Teemu Selanne should be first because, he is old, but still in top 20 in points. Finnish Flash is the hockey king.

Should be first because Jagr was a bum everywhere except for Pittsburgh and screwed the capitals to having to rebuild

He is still playing against the youngsters and does it really good.

Legend

No knock against the top3 but nick is a true legend a norris trophy winner at age 40 unheard of

What!?! I am not a fan or anything but Nicklas is the third best defensmen of all time voted by the NHL PA Jaromir is 52nd forward and Teemu is 49th so Nick should be 1st! - Awesomelionking10

4 Peter Forsberg

The perfect all round player. When fit, there was no-one on the planet who could touch him. His size, speed and strength were all great but it was his sick stick handling skills that made him truly elite.

Great hockey player haunted by a foot injury. He is one of the few players that have won stanley cup, world championship and Olympic gold twice. He can read the game like no one else and when he played healthy he was as good as Lemieux and Gretzky.

Best player of all times. He didn't have a chance to show it for long, but when he was healthy, he dominated the NHL.

Ask Scott Stevens Joe Sakic who is the greatest player

5 Dominik Hasek

There is no question that the Dominator is the best goalie of all time. He won 6 Vezina trophies and 2 Heart trophies. Most of which came when he played for the Buffalo Sabres, who would have been horrible without him. He also became the first European goaltender to win the Stanley Cup. There is no question Jagr is the best European to ever play in the NHL, but Hasek should be 2nd.

6 Vladislav Tretiak

Tretiak would have dominated against any of the greatest goaltenders of that time. He owned Ken Dryden the best goalie in the 1970s and the Canadians in the 72 Summit Series. His Domination of the IIHF and Olympics was incredible. Greatest goaltender of all time.

Led the Soviets to 45 consecutive wins up until 1980 in the Olympics when USA beat them 4-3

Come on where is Henrick Lundquist. 50 shutouts and 309 wins not even 10 seasons. 920. Top goalie in 2012. One year not in playoffs. And a gold and a silver and he is the KING.

7 Alexander Ovechkin Alexander Ovechkin Alexander Mikhailovich "Alex" Ovechkin is a Russian professional ice hockey winger and captain of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League.

This generations most exciting player

8 Jari Kurri

Gretzy's go to winger, kurri scored over 600 goals

A guy who could finish as well as being the set up man

601 goals I think.

9 Evgeni Malkin

Pittsburgh's second line center is better than any other team's first

10 Sergei Fedorov

Get out datsyuk rules

The Contenders

11 Valeri Kharlamov

Kharlamov was the Russian Wayne Gretzky. What he did in his Era and in his time on earth was incredible. He is the only skater to be elected into the Hockey hall of fame without playing a single game in the NHL. Like his teammate Tretiak, Kharlamov was a lost treasure in a time of greatness during the Cold War.

12 Peter Stastny

overshadowed by gretzky stastny scored the second most points of any one in the 80s

13 Mats Sundin

Unlike federov and jagr and forsberg he had no one else...jonas hoglund enough said
