    Krys Kolanos and Jeff Taffe for Phoenix. I believe Keith Tkachuk, as well.

    Ryan Malone played 3 games in the AHL right after his senior season, then he made the jump to the NHL.
     
  6. Taffe has spent time in the minors so he doesn't really qualify. I think what the orig. poster was *probably* asking for are guys who went from college to the NHL and stayed in the NHL, not getting shuttled back and forth between the minors and the NHL. Tkachuk never spent any time in the minors, if I recall correctly. Not sure where Phil Housley came from (it may have been directly from high school, an even more amazing feet, IMO) but I believe he also never played any minor league hockey, coming straight from HS or college. I'm also to lazy to look it up but did Chris Chelios spend any time in the minors after being drafted and playing at Madison?

    There are numerous players. Quickly off the top of my head I can think of a few.

    Heatley
    Drury
    Kariya
    York
    Tkachuk
    Leetch
    Nieuwendyk
    Amonte
    Rob Blake
    Jason Blake
    Chelios

    Actually I think Jason played for the Solar Bears before he played in the NHL.

    Also, John Leclair.

    Kesler played in 28 games for the Canucks last season, but he also played in 33 games for the Moose. So he didn't really go straight from the NCAA to the NHL.
