    Title says it all. Has some player managed to do this?
    Yesterday I was browsing on the Wikipedia and other sites and found out that Robert Lang played for four of these teams (Habs, Chicago, Detroit and Boston). Did someone played for more?

    Vic Lynn played for all 6, I think he is the only one:

    NYR: 42-43 (1GP)
    Detroit: 43-44 (3GP)
    Montreal: 45 (2GP)
    Toronto: 46-50 (213 reg GP, 35 post GP)
    Boston: 50-52 (68 reg GP, 5 post GP)
    Blackhawks: 52-54 (40 reg GP, 7 post GP)

    Several played for 5:

    Leroy Goldsworthy: NYR, Detroit, Chicago, Montreal, Boston.
    Bronco Horvath: NYR, Montreal, Boston, Chicago, Toronto. (was on Detroit roster, played and exhibition game... never played an NHL game for them.)
    Bud Poile: Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, NYR, Boston.
    Gaye Stewart: Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, NYR, Montreal.
    Harry Lumley: Boston, Chicago, Detroit, NYR, Toronto.

    Some recent guys with 4:

    Mathieu Schneider: Montreal, NYR, Toronto, Detroit.
    Anders Eriksson: Detroit, Chicago, NYR, Toronto.
    Aaron Downey: Boston, Chicago, Montreal, Detroit.
    Robert Lang: Boston, Detroit, Montreal, Chicago.

    There are I imagine a lot who have played for 4... especially pre 1967.

    Larry Hillman, Terry Sawchuk, Jaques Plante, Lorne Davis, Pete Babando, John Brenneman, Dave Creighton, Reggie Flemming and Carl Voss did, found them after 10 minutes of looking, so there will most likely many more.

    12.

    Mike Sillinger. He only played for 1 Original Six team... Detroit.

    Michel Petit, JJ Daignault, Jim Dowd and Schneider played for 10.

    Then a tonne of guys played for 9 or 8.

    Coffey (9) Ray Whitney (8), Bill Guernin (8), Robert Lang (8) and Hously (8) being probably the most notable in that range.

    Dominic Moore has played for as many teams as he has spent years in the NHL as of this year.

    Here is a list: http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/players/most_teams.html

    I believe this is a full list of players who have played at least one NHL game with at least four different O6 teams:
