Cal O'Reilly spent the first six years of his pro career with the Nashville Predators organization.


That stability came to an abrupt halt this season, when O'Reilly was traded by Nashville to Phoenix after five games. Since then, O'Reilly has played for three more teams – two AHL and one more NHL (Pittsburgh), and has worn a total of five different jerseys this season.


While O'Reilly may not have enjoyed the stability he had for much of his career, this season certainly has given him an opportunity to play with a ton of great players.


And that has given O'Reilly an advantage when it came time to pick his fantasy team.
