Annually, The Athletic conducts surveys with National Hockey League players on a variety of topics, often yielding unexpectedly candid responses.

A question that consistently captivates fans is 'Who is the league's most overrated player?' and this year's poll was no exception.

The 'Other' category topped the results with 26.73%, representing a diverse group of more than 25 players each receiving at least one vote.

In the poll, Anaheim Ducks' forward Trevor Zegras ranked second with 12.87% of the votes. He was followed by Edmonton Oilers' defenseman Darnell Nurse with 7.92%. Tying for the fourth spot were Matthew Tkachuk from the Florida Panthers and Jason Robertson from the Dallas Stars, each garnering 6.93%.


It's somewhat unexpected to find Matthew Tkachuk and Jason Robertson ranked so prominently in the players' vote. Despite their performance not quite matching their 2022-23 levels, they maintain more than a point-per-game, making it somewhat startling to see their peers regard them as overrated.

Who would you consider the most overrated player in the National Hockey League? Share your thoughts in the poll below!
