With the NHL free agency signings only a month away, several players will be looking for new contracts.
According to quanthockey.com, the Colorado Avalanche had the youngest team during the 2011-12 season posting an average player age of 26.067.
Although teams are always trying to load up with youth to prepare for the future, there are still some seasoned veterans who can make a difference on the ice.
There aren't exactly any Gordie Howes out there. Howe played 80 games for the Hartford Whalers in 1979 when he was 51 years old.
However, there are some solid veterans who still have the passion to play hockey at the highest level.
