Luck is a funny thing in hockey. There are lucky bounces and lucky breaks, but this list features the 20 luckiest players in NHL history.

Sometimes, players have fortunate situations like being on the ice with a superstar linemate or a very average player contributing to some very good hockey teams.

In other situations, players appear in a small number of games and still manage to get their names on the Stanley Cup.

Or players suffer bad injuries but avoid more serious injuries or even death. Sure, these situations are bad, but they could have certainly been a lot worse, thereby making the players quite lucky when you look at the big picture.

Here are the NHL's 20 luckiest players. Feel free to add to the list but indicate why you feel your player belongs on the list.
