“Claude had pretty well everything you need to play in the NHL except he wasn’t a good skater. He had a good shot. Then, there were only six teams. If it had been the seventies, he might have made the NHL,” shrugs Henri.
This isn’t a complete list by any means, but here’s some other brothers who’ve made the NHL:
The Sutter’s, of course.
Reg, Doug, and Max Bentley
Eric, Marc, and Jordan Staal
Charlie, Lionel, and Roy Conacher
Bill, Bun, and Bud Cook
Barclay, Bob, and Bill Plager
Wally and Beaver Cleaver
Orville and Wilbur Wright
Duane and Gregg Allman
Groucho, Harpo, Chico, Gummo, and Zeppo Marx
