2003 NHL Re-Draft

5 of 6

The 2003 NHL Draft was one of the top drafts ever held, likely after the 1979 NHL Draft. Each first-round pick ended up playing in a regular season game. The draft saw 26 players go on to be NHL All-Stars. 6 draftees went on to captain an NHL team.

In this re-draft, I’ve reverted all the draft picks to their original owners. It’s been a long time since the draft, so maybe some teams would like to rethink their decisions.

22. St. Louis Blues
