    anyone know off-hand if there are any division 3 NCAA players currently in the NHL? i figured the odds of one making the show were pretty short, but would be interested to see the numbers.

    Minot State is actually a Jr College one division down from div three. There has to be the odd guy that has made it.

    A few guys from CIS have made it. Which is better then Div 3.

    yup - aucoin was the only guy i could think of...anyone else? i think guy hebert was probably the best D3 guy to lace em up in the pro ranks.

    are there any guys in D3 currently that are worthy of being drafted?

    If memory serves me correctly, Hebert played at Hamilton College. Hebert and Aucoin, as you just mentioned would've been my guesses too.

    John Carter, a Flyers draft pick is currently at Trinity College, I know that. Only other D-III I suppose could have a shot at the NHL down the road (albeit a long shot) IMO is probably Kyle Koziara out of Middlebury...the school that seems to have a lock on the D-III National Championship EVERY year.

    Greg Adams, who played for the Canucks, believe it or not actually played for a team at the University of Northern Arizona...whatever the heck that is.

    Dan Bylsma, former Ducks, was also a NCAA D-III product. I don't have any current player in mind though.
     

  9. It's a university that is, strangely enough, located in the northern part of a state called Arizona.

    Idk if anyone gets USA Hockey magazine...there was an article about this like 2 months ago. I can't find my issue, but if someone has it, there's a list of players.

    Minot State is actually an NAIA school that plays ACHA Division 1 club hockey. Penner played for the Lumberjacks of Minot State University-Bottineau.

    That'd be Division I University of Northern Arizona (based in Flagstaff I believe)... they folded up shop in 1988(?) They played in a 4 team league with Alaska-Anchorage, Alaska-Fairbanks, and US International for a few years.

    edit: Kryger was a product of University of Connecticut back in the Division III days.
