— Scored his first NHL point in his debut on Oct. 4, 2007 in a game against the St. Louis Blues
— Career stats: 10 years, 117 goals, 196 assists, 23 game-winning goals
— He’s a leader: Hanzal has served as an alternate captain for the Coyotes since 2011-12
— Ranks eighth all-time in Arizona Coyotes franchise history for games played (608)
— Hanzal is coming off his best season as a pro in 2015-16. He scored 13 goals and tallied 28 assists en route to a 41-point year.
— Received votes for the Frank J. Selke trophy (best NHL forward) in 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12.
— Want the Wild to beat the Chicago Blackhawks this postseason? Hanzal has already done so. His overtime game-winning goal beat Chicago in Game 1 of the 2012 Western Conference quarterfinals. Phoenix went on to win the series 4-2.
— He loves to fish. The center brought foster kids from Arizona out to a lake to teach them the basics of fishing this fall. Pick a lake, Hanzal! We have over 10,000 of them to choose from!
— Hanzal is tough. And he showed that during, of all things, the Ice Bucket Challenge two summers ago. This video is definitely worth the watch:
— No. 11. Hanzal wore No. 11 with Arizona for his entire career because his “name day” in the Czech Republic is Nov. 11. Sorry, Hanzal…we already have a No. 11 (CC: Zach Parise)
— The Wild will be White’s fourth team in his NHL career. He was a third-round draft pick by the Montreal Canadiens in 2006 and played in the organization until 2014. He played two years with the Philadelphia Flyers and was in the middle of a one-year deal with Arizona before being traded to the Wild.
— Career stats: Eight years, 294 games played, 29 goals, 29 assists, 433 penalty minutes, 770 hits
— He scored his first NHL goal at the Xcel Energy Center on March 20, 2011. The Canadiens beat the Wild 8-1 that game. Yikes.
— White’s greatest quality, though, is his role as an enforcer.
