Inspiration: Jordan, Eric, and Jared are all in the Hurricanes system.

Famously we had Gordie, Mark and Marty Howe all playing on the same line for the New England Whalers of the WHA.

Sadly the maximum Sutters per team topped out at two: Duane and Brent on the Islanders, and Rich and Ron on the Blues.

Who else was there?

Bill, Bob, and Barclay Plager played together on St. Louis.

Bobby, Guy, and Rollie Rousseau played together on Montreal.

Also, the Stastnys.

Richard / Rousseau

Claude Richard, youngest Richard brother, played junior and minor pro in the Canadiens system in the late fifties while Maurice and Henri were with the NHL team:

Guy and Rollie Rousseau had brief call-ups to the Canadiens in the first half of the fifties then stayed in their minor league system while younger brother Bobby played for the junior Canadiens in the second half of the fifties. Bobby played for the Canadiens in the sixties.

Many early hockey era players were from the same family on the same team. The great Ottawa Silver Seven dynasty had HHOFer Billy Gilmour and his two brothers; also Alex Smith had siblings with the same franchise during the same era.

Hockey history has a lot of family connections. Bobby Holik's father and uncle were core players of the great world championship winning 1970's Czechoslovakian teams, truly world class, beating the mighty Soviets time and again.

... at the professional level, dont believe so. There have been 47 brothers who have played together for the same team since 1917, among them Terry & Kenny Reardon in Montreal, Fred & Howie Glover in Chicago, Larry & Wayne Hillman with both the North Stars & the Flyers. Trios included the Stastnys of course, 3 Plagers in St.Louis, Hec & Wally Kilrea in Detroit while Ken was also Red Wings property but played in their minor system, Ray, Gord & Pat Hannigan of the Leafs, one of em' only playing a single or handful of games in the blue & white.

doesn't answer the question, but i remember an article from the '92 season where they did a photo at a blackhawks/blues game that involved all six of the sutter brothers that made the NHL.

brent sutter had just been traded to darryl's old team the blackhawks, where darryl was one of keenan's assistant coaches and duane was a scout. brian was head coach of the blues, and the twins were both on that team.

One of the most unique brother acts has to be the Dionne's. Gilbert did not make it to the NHL until after Marcel retired. Very unusual, but they are something like 20 years apart.

the other unusual thing is gilbert only played two full seasons while marcel was the third leading scorer of all time when gilbert was in the league, and yet gilbert won more playoff rounds in one year (the '93 cup run) than marcel did in his entire career (3).

I'm gonna remember this, that's an awesome piece of trivia.

Devils do that a bit where they have the other sibling in the minors. Brian Gionta's brother, Parise's brother and at least one of Zajac's brothers were in there at the same time

ha! I never knew Gilbert Dionne was Marcel Dionne's brother.

How many pairs of twins have played in the NHL? Daniel and Henrik, and two of the Sutters. Any others?

^ sundstrom and lundqvist twins. joel lundqvist was drafted four rounds earlier than his vezina winning brother.

also, the rangers drafted twins chris and peter ferraro back in '92. both played a few games in the league but were career AHL all-stars.

Slovan Bratislava - not only trio of Stastny brothers played there, but also their eldest brother Vladimir, obviously it was before arrival of Stastny brothers to Slovan Bratislava, so I don't know if this counts.

Was going to post this, surprised someone else remembers it too.

Will probably never be duplicated given that players are only eligible to play in the CHL for 5 seasons ... to have 4 brothers fall in that age range is crazy enough, much less having them all on the same team at once.

___________

To take this a slightly different direction, what would be the *least* distinguished pair of brothers to play together for the same team at the NHL level? Dave and Jack Capuano for the Canucks in 1991 would have to be right up there - 110 NHL games between them.
