Top 15 Active NHLers To Never Win a Ring

The Stanley Cup is often called the hardest trophy to win and the players who win it automatically get their names etched into the record books for all to see. The Stanley Cup truly signifies hard work, determination and a will to win. However, this list won’t be focusing on players who have won the elusive Stanley Cup, it will be focusing on the best active players who are yet to win the Stanley Cup.

This list will primarily focus on two types of players. The first is the category of younger stars who still may win one, but still deserve a spot on this list for the time being. The second category is the one that features older players who have been consistent for so long, but haven't managed to win the big one.

In the list, we looked to include a wide variety of positions and players, as to not get caught up with one sort of player. You may disagree, as there are tons of solid players who have never won a cup, but read on and enjoy our look at the Top 15 Active NHLers to Never Win a Ring.

Coming in at number one on the list, is none other than Washington Capitals sniper, Alex Ovechkin. He is the best pure goal scorer we have seen in the NHL for a good while and has been pulling off highlight reel moves for years. He is a three-time Hart Trophy Winner, a five-time Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy Winner and has numerous other impressive accolades. Despite all this success, a Stanley Cup has still eluded him, which makes him an easy choice for the best active NHL player to never win a ring.
