Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by coolio123, Feb 16, 2004.
Just wondering if players older than 20 can be drafted?
Yep, Karel Pilar was drafted when he was 23 and I know Jiri Dopita had been drafted several times before finally coming to America...
I think only Euros can ( and have too) be drafted when they're older then 20 to get to the nhl. If you're from NA you can be signed as a ufa when you're above 20... i think, not sure..
This is right as far as I know? Maybe 20 years old instead of above 20 though in North America.
