When we watch an NHL hockey game, how do we watch it?

Do we watch as a casual fan and root for our team? Do we watch just to keep track of our fantasy roster? Or do we watch intensely and watch every movement?

Hockey is a fast game that is played by some of the biggest players on earth. These players are skating at top speed, doing only the imaginable with the puck. They have the grace and dedication to showcase their skills at a high level.

Some players have general skills, like shooting the puck, playing defense, or excelling in goal. However, there are players, two of them in this piece, who you watch in amazement because of the special skills they have to take over a game.

Here are the best NHL players to wear numbers 61-70.

These two specific players played on the same team and dominated enough to be 2 of the top 5 players from 1990 to 2000. These players had skill, but they had a way of bringing you out of your seat whenever they touched the puck.

Then there are players who you absolutely hate but are one of the best players in the league at what he does. A player who has been suspended before but fans would want on their team at the first opportunity.

There are also quality players who are not first-line players but contribute in one way or another. Believe it or not, these types of players do deserve to have a spot on the roster and do play important roles on every team.

Hockey is such a beautiful game. The speed at which it’s played, the players who make unreal moves at top speeds, and the sportsmanship that is a game within a game all make it special.

What these athletes put their bodies through is truly amazing. And that you will not find in any other sport.

With that said, here are the best players to wear jersey numbers 61-70 in the NHL.
