I get that a lot. • United States • 42 Years Old • Male
As a follow-up to my blog on the dwindling number of former Winnipeg Jets still playing in the NHL, here's the breakdown of the one-time Quebec Nordiques:

Adam Foote-CBS
Martin Gelinas-NSH
Jon Klemm-LA
Aaron Miller-VAN
Owen Nolan-CGY
Martin Rucinsky-STL
Joe Sakic-COL (the only remaining Avalanche player to have suited up for the Nords)
Chris Simon-NYI*
Mats Sundin-TOR
Jocelyn Thibault-BUF

*technically, despite his suspension and leave of absence

(perhaps the list will grow with the rumored return of Peter Forsberg)

Ron Hextall-Asst GM, LA Kings
Garth Snow-GM, NY Islanders

Dale Hunter-Head Coach, London Knights (OHL)
John Paddock-Head Coach, Ottawa Senators (NHL)

Jamie Baker
Bill Lindsay
Greg Millen
Randy Moller

*note: Moller (PxP) and Lindsay (Color) work together as the Florida Panthers radio team

Next Generation
Jeremy Duchesne (PHI goalie prospect--son of Gaetan)
John Grahame (son of Ron)
Paul Stastny (son of Peter)

You forgot Michel Goulet who is an exec with the Avalanche and Dylan Hunter who is Dale's son and plays for the Rochester Americans a draft pick of the Buffalo Sabres.

Thanks 26. I'll openly admit I was primarily focused on the active players, and offered the others as a sample of the other roles former Nords currently play. Thanks for the additional info!!!

Interesting observation 23. Good to have Gelinas here. He's a solid skater with a distinctive style and provides good leadership and outstanding hustle. He's all class as far as I'm concerned.
