Every year a few (European) players get drafted with overaged. Examples: Daniel Alfredsson, 1972-late, drafted in 1994 Sami Kapanen, 1973, 1995 Sami Salo, 1974, 1996 Karlis Skrastins, 1974, 1998 Those players for example have been succesful in NHL. Possible overaged for this year's draft? I start with some possible Finnish players: Toni SÃ¶derholm, D, 1978 HIFK captain is good defenseman on both ends. Only his second season in SM-liiga after four seasons at Mass.-Amherst. Scored 16 goals and had 21 assists which ranked second in defenseman scoring. Janne Pesonen, W, 1982 Biggest Rookie of the Year canditate. 17+13, +15. Not a good playoffs by far, but he is still playing (and his team KÃ¤rpÃ¤t leads best-of-5 finals 1-0 with next game at home). Janne Niskala, D, 1981 Lukko defenseman was first defenseman in years, who scored 20 goals in SM-liiga (Jari Korhonen, 1975, also did that). Good shooter, was chased by bigger teams but decided to stay at Rauma. Markku TÃ¤htinen, C, 1978 Big pressure after his move from Ã„ssÃ¤t to Lukko (they are big rivals) Was ranked 5th in assists (32), and played also in national team.
