#TBT: NHL players couldn't name members of The Beatles

Kevin Bieksa, Blake Wheeler, Kyle Okposo only ones to remember all four @NHLdotcom

Puck Personality: The Beatles

Can you name all four Beatles?

Everyone knows the Fab Four...right? Let's ask Erik Karlsson, Henrik Lundqvist, Patrick Kane and other NHL stars to name them.

Everyone knows the members of The Beatles. Well, everyone except NHL players, it seems.

Thursday was the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." But in 2015, when pressed to name the members of the band, many NHL players failed to come up with John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison or Ringo Starr.

"I have no idea what their names are," P.K. Subban said at the time.

"I can't name one of them," T.J. Oshie said.

Erik Karlsson and Henrik Lundqvist each came up with one a piece. Justin Williams and Andy Greene each named three, forgetting Harrison. But only Kevin Bieksa and Blake Wheeler were able to name all four members of the band on four guesses -- though Kyle Okposo got credit after five guesses, mistakenly choosing "Paul Ringo" as an option.

Sounds like some of these guys could've gotten by with a little help from their friends.
