For the most part, I don’t think that many people would argue the fact that hockey players aren’t necessarily the best looking guys out there. Toughest? You better fucking believe it, but handsome? Yeah, I don’t know about that, except for the handsome devil that is the 2x Stanley Cup Champion, Sidney Crosby. Love that beautiful bastard.
Anyways, a huge reason as to why hockey players aren’t the best looking of people, is because a ton of them are missing their teeth, and seeing them smile is just miserable/terrifying. So naturally, we decided to come up with a list of current and former NHL players who had the worst smiles in league history. Although the list is number, it’s not based off of who’s missing teeth were better or worse for someone’s smile, because let’s face it all of the guys on this list are pretty fucking ugly, no matter how many teeth they may or may not have.
Bobby Hull was one of the best players in NHL history, with some of the worst teeth to go along with it. No matter how many achievements the hall of famer had throughout his career, he just couldn't keep his teeth in his mouth. (Source: Twitter)
Dustin Brown was the captain during the Los Angeles Kings two Stanley Cup Championship teams in 2012 and 2014. He's no longer the captain, partially because that he kinda sucks, but also because they realized they can't have a guy with no teeth as their captain anymore. Okay I made that last part up, but I wouldn't blame the Kings if that was their reason for taking away the "C" on his sweater. (Source: Twitter)
The lone goalie on our list is none other than USA-born Ben Bishop. He's the only goalie on our list because I have no idea how he got his teeth knocked out; goalies wear masks that cover up their entire faces. Regardless, toothless Ben cracks our list. (Source: Twitter)
I'm starting to see a trend with some of the recent guys on the list, and it's that they have absolutely no skills at all, and are just big dumb jack asses looking to start fights on the ice. Oh yeah, and they're missing all of their teeth. Stortini is no different from the other idiots of his kind on the list. (Source: Twitter)
Last but certainly not least, old man Kenny Daneyko. Now unlike some of the guys on this list, Daneyko was actually a pretty solid player who spent his entire with the New Jersey Devils. During that time, he helped them win three Stanley Cups, racked up a ton of penalty minutes, got his jersey retired by the team, and lost all of his teeth. Not a bad career I must say.

I’m sure there are a ton of players that I left off of the list, but when half of the players in league history (I made that stat up) were missing their teeth, it’s kind of hard to narrow it down to which 15 were the best at missing their teeth. If there’s anyone I left off that you feel I should have included, feel free to let me know on Twitter @ConnorHazelton.
