    I was looking through drafts to pass some time and came across this from 2000.

    5 156 Ottawa Greg Zanon D U. of Nebraska-Omaha [CCHA] 370 9 35 44 168
    5 157 Ottawa Grant Potulny C Lincoln Stars [USHL]
    5 158 Ottawa Sean Connolly D Northern Michigan University [CCHA]

    I thought that was pretty neat.

    The old Amateur Draft didn't have a limit on the number of rounds, and some teams would keep on picking players well after the other teams had finished. That's why the '74 draft went 25 rounds.

    The Canadiens tended to keep picking players at the end of the draft. In '78 they had the last six picks, for instance. (Chris Nilan was the fourth-to-last pick, the only player picked in the 19th round.)
