Never-Drafted All-star team

by chewy 9. September 2009 06:04

Who says the draft is so important?  Sure, the overwhelming majority of players enter the NHL through traditional means.  But, there is a lot of talent in the NHL right now that never heard their name called at the draft table.  You could assemble quite a team from these overlooked gems.  Maybe Jim Balsillie can start his own squad by sifting through the junior ranks and European circuit.


I've assembled what I think to be a pretty decent roster of undrafted players.  I'm sure I missed a few.  Interestingly enough, the Cup winning Pens have four undrafted names, while the runner up Redwings boasted three of their own.  Here it is:



Niklas Backstrom

Dwayne Roloson

Ty Conklin



Dan Boyle - Marc-Andre Bergeron

Mark Eaton - Tom Preissing

Brian Rafalski - Brett Lebda



Martin St. Louis - Andy McDonald - Jason Blake

Sean Avery - John Madden - Chris Kunitz

Alex Burrows - Dustin Penner - Ruslan Fedotenko

Todd White - Pascal Dupuis - Chad Larose


Amazing to think that all those scouts missed out on the chance to add names like Backstrom, Boyle, Rafalski, and St. Louis to their rosters.
