Numbers For Nerds

23 different players have appeared in an NHL game for both franchises, with Santorelli being the only current player to do so. Paul Kariya is the most famous, having played 606 games with the Mighty Ducks and 164 with the Predators. Of those players, ten are wings, eight are defensemen, four are centers and one a goalie.

Here's the full list of Duck/Preds:

Brandon Bochenski, Sheldon Brookbank, Matt Cullen, J.J. Daigneault, Dan Ellis, Stu Grimson, Paul Kariya, Bill Houlder, Shane Hnidy, Patric Kjellberg, Sergei Krivokrasov, Matthew Lombardi, Jim McKenzie, Mark Mowers, Shane O'Brien, Mike Santorelli, Mike Sillinger, Jeremy Stevenson, Petr Sykora, Petr Tenkrat, Pascal Trepanier, Vitaly Vishnevski, and Jason York.

If Brian McGrattan gets called up from San Diego this season he'd be the 24th, having played 32 games with Nashville from the 11-12 to 12-13 seasons.
