    Just a random question, has puzzled me for a while but I was to lazy to go through every player in last year's draft.

    Normally a hand full every year. By handful I mean 5-10.

    Quite often I think, Pens have drafted Luca Caputi, Dustin Jeffrey and Nick Petersen who were all skipped over in their first draft eligible year. David Perron and Viktor Tikhnov were two recent first round picks who didn't get picked in their first draft eligible year.

    I think Joonas Rask was drafted the 3rd time he was eligible.

    This and by the later rounds.

    It's much easier to sign them than waste a draft pick.

    A lot more than this.

    EDIT: Just a quick look at the 2010 draft, I get 35. That includes players also eligible in their 3rd and 4th years.

    more often than you would think...

    for example, Toronto drafted 2 alone in the 2006 draft

    As every else has said, it happens a lot. Specifically from the 4th round and on.

    Mikko Koskinen was first pick of second round in 2009. He was 4th time eligible.

    But Islanders drafted him so it doesn't count? : sarcasm :

    What's the exact cutoff date?

    Benoit Pouliot is born on Sept. 29. 1986.

    He was either one of the oldest 1st year player available, or a 2nd year player.

    It's worth mentionning that prior to his "draft year", he played only 4 OHL games.

    According to wikipedia: All players who will be 18 years old by September 15... ...are eligible for selection for that year's NHL Entry Draft

    Yeah- it happens more than we think- usually in later rounds- sometimes in the 1st, 2nd (Tiks, Perron, Trevor Lewis)

    Buffalo does it's usual 7th rounder overager (Riley Boychuk (10), Max Legault (09), Mancari, Hunter (04), Dennis, Generous (05) heck we drafted Nathan Paetsch (03) in the 7th when he didn't get signed the 1st time (Caps 2nd rounder),

    Nope. Just going back one more year, in 2009, I count 49 previously eligible players drafted.

    Nikolai Kulemin and Carl Gunnarsson are both good players that the Leafs drafted in 2006. They were both passed over the first time.

    You're right about Perron, but wrong about Giroux.
