The Canadian 6-pack: Has anyone ever played for all 6 Canadian teams?

So here is the question I have been wondering: Has anyone ever played for all 6 Canadian teams? I know there was a thread up about anyone playing for all original 6 teams, but this is completely different. Just to clarify, we are talking modern day Canadian teams, so that includes (in no particular order):

Calgary Flames
Edmonton Oilers
Montreal Canadiens
Ottawa Senators
Toronto Maples Leafs
Vancouver Canucks

Add an * for the Winnipeg Jets and Quebec Nordiques

I'll start it off with Doug Gilmour with 3. Calgary, Toronto, Montreal

let's keep it to concrete examples like Dougie rather than loose ones like Mike Johnson with 3. As he is linked to to Toronto, Montreal and Phoenix, which was the Winnipeg Jets.

Brian Smolinski has played for Ottawa, Montreal and Vancouver.
Roman Hamerlik: Edmonton, Calgary, Montreal
Andrew Cassels: Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver
Jyrki Lumme: Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto
Dan Quinn: Calgary, Vancouver, Ottawa
Carl Voss: Toronto, Ottawa and the Montreal Maroons.
Larry Hillman: Toronto, Montreal and WHA Winnipeg
Gary Smith: Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg
Phil Housley: Winnipeg, Calgary, Toronto
Rob Ramage: Calgary, Toronto, Montreal
*At this point, I stopped recording 3 team players I've found.

4 teams:
Martin Gelinas: Edmonto, Quebec, Vancouver and Calgary.
Brent Ashton: Vancouver, Quebec, Winnpeg, and Calgary
Jim Dowd: Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Montreal.
Brian Marchment: Winnipeg, Edmonton, Toronto and Calgary
Ken Hammond: Edmonton, Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa
Ron Tugnutt: Quebec, Edmonton, Montreal and Ottawa

5 teams:
Michel Petit: Vancouver, Quebec, Toronto, Calgary, and Edmonton
Bobby Dollas: Winnipeg, Quebec, Edmonton, Ottawa, and Calgary

That's the best I can get...

Vincent Damphousse played for three Canadian teams (Toronto, Edmonton, Montreal) in three consecutive years, and lead those teams in scoring those years (1990 to 1993).

Glenn Anderson never played for the Canucks, though they did briefly hold his rights.

They signed him as a UFA, but he had to pass through waivers first, and was claimed.

Hockeydb has a list of players who played for the most different teams, I used that as a starting point and did it the hard way.

Just thought of two more players on the chart that played for the Canucks.

Gary Leeman and Ken Hammond.

I was aware of this fact as well, and I find it the most interesting.

i cant think of anyone thats played for more than 5 canadian teams....just to change the subject a bit....has anyone (post expansion) played for all 6 original 6 teams??

i know Brian Leetch has played for 3...Toronto, New York, Boston
same with Paul Coffey...Chicago, Boston, Detroit

only one player comes to mind in terms of playing for any "all teams" category...in this case...all new york state teams....pat lafontaine...buffalo, rangers, islanders

Vic Lynn played for all 6 Original 6 teams back in the 40s and 50s.

Bronco Horvath played for 5 of them.

Out of post-expansion players, the highest I can think of is Mathieu Schneider with 4 (Mtl, Tor, NYR, Det)

This appears to be a case of the NHL sending out conflicting information. In the official 1998 edition of Total Hockey, he's listed in `42-`43 as playing the entire year for the NY Rovers of the EHL; hockeydb says the same. However, the official 2003 edition of the Total NHL book has him playing one game for the Rangers that year.
That's also listed on his bio at Legends of Hockey here http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/...p?player=13446

Who knows what's right?
