The 10 Most Successful Hockey Families in NHL History

Hockey has always been a different kind of sport than baseball, basketball or football. As children, boys and girls who excel spend a lot of time together in the car or van with their parents driving to hockey games and spending the weekend in hotels.

Consequently, a lot of kids tend to follow siblings onto the rink; many played on the same team. In Canada and the United States, it is common to see family members on the rink skating as teammates. The NHL has many famous family acts that have added to its legend throughout the years.

We have listed the ten most successful, but there are many honorable mentions.
