NHL 19 Ratings: Top Left Wings

(Image Credit: EA Sports)

The most notorious goal-scoring machine tops this list of NHL 19’s best left wings, but is followed by more outstanding players in the league. Rather than being filled with mostly snipers, as is the case for the best right wings in NHL 19, the elite-level left wing corps features many different player roles, so you have plenty of choices to suit your style.

Alex Ovechkin is the most notorious goal scorer in the NHL. You can back him to score over 30 goals every season without fail – he’s even eclipsed the 50-goal mark six times. In NHL 19, he’s the best sniper and left wing, but what makes him so great to have at any time in the game is his 94 strength, 91 body checking, and, of course, the 95s for his slap shots. 

Jamie Benn (90 OVR)

Jamie Benn is one of the best all-around, elite-level skaters on the game. His 89 stick checking, 90 strength, 88 body checking, 89 speed, 89 acceleration, 92 in all puck skills, 91 in slap shots, and 92 in wrist shots make Benn one of the most enjoyable players to play as in NHL 19. 


Taylor Hall (90 OVR)

Team: New Jersey DevilsRole: SniperAge: 26Nationality: CanadianHeight: 185cmWeight: 93kgShoots: LeftBest Stats: Speed 95, Acceleration 94, Wrist Shot Accuracy 93, Puck Control 93

Bar the ridiculously overpowered Connor McDavid, Taylor Hall is the fastest player on NHL 19. On the wing, that speed can be put to very good use. Using Hall’s 92 deking, 92 hand-eye, and 93 puck control to get around their right defenseman, you can easily use his immense speed numbers to blaze across the front of the net and poke the puck home. 


Johnny Gaudreau (90 OVR)

Team: Calgary FlamesRole: SniperAge: 25Nationality: AmericanHeight: 175cmWeight: 71kgShoots: LeftBest Stats: Deking 95, Discipline 95, Puck Control 95, Agility 94, Passing 94, Acceleration 94, Hand-Eye 94, Offensive Awareness 94

While Johnny Gaudreau lacks in physicality, it’s his smaller frame that makes him lightning fast and potent in the offensive end. With 94 acceleration, agility and 93 speed, he can beat any defenseman for pace, while his 91 slap shot accuracy and 92 wrist shot accuracy make him a breeze to score with when he’s in on goal. 


Brad Marchand (88 OVR)

Brad Marchand isn’t the biggest player on the ice, but you wouldn’t think it from the way he throws his body around. With 91 aggressiveness, 89 body checking, and 87 strength, Marchand can put anyone down on the ice and then use his 88 speed, 89 deking, and 92 wrist shot accuracy to score after the hit.
