No. 32: LW Steve Thomas (1987-91, 2001-03)

This man with an extremely forgettable name (sorry to all the Steve Thomases reading this) actually had a lengthy and solid NHL career. Thomas played in the league from age 21 through age 40 and posted 953 points in 1,235 games.

He had some of his better seasons with Chicago and the New York Islanders. After going for nearly a point per game in his first Blackhawks season (26 in 30), Thomas hit 40 points or more in each of his next full three seasons in the Indian Head. He posted 164 points over those next three years before being moved to New York early in the 1991-92 campaign.

Thomas came back for a swan song of sorts at ages 38 and 39, collecting 32 points in 113 games as the organization was steadily sliding downward.

Next: No. 33
