The Coolest Names In the NHL

This is the last article in a four-part series about the coolest names in the four major pro sports leagues.  The other three can now be found on my profile page. 

These names are listed in order that the first letter of the city that the player's team comes in the alphabet.  The Anaheim Ducks players come first, the Washington Capitals players last.
