Jim Corsi, who spent his entire NHL career with the Edmonton Oilers, is a rather interesting guy. He took an unusual road to the NHL, through Canadian university hockey. He spent three years with the Canadian Olympic soccer team during that time as well, before leaving soccer to focus solely on hockey.
