Here, we’ll be focussing on all of the legends that anyone can play as at any time through the NHL Alumni Association teams. 

These teams include legends like Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Patrick Roy, Brett Hull, Paul Coffey, and many other all-time greats. Playing on the lines of the All-Time West, All-Time East, All-Time Grit, Local Legends, and the ultimate All-Time All-Star team, these are the legend who you can play as in NHL 19.
