    I really have no idea myself, could someone help me out here?

    Specifically, is there anyone playing in Europe, the NCAA, CHL, USHL, etc. who was passed over in the last couple of drafts but could still end up being a useful NHLer down the road?

    Martin Jones for the Kings. Wasn't drafted his draft year then came to the Kings camps during the summer, got signed. Then tore up the WHL with the Hitmen and now is doing really well in his first year in the AHL.

    High hockey IQ and less mistake prone than probably even Adam Larsson. Has really had his breakout year this season but unfortunately scoring is too low. Maybe a bit too small.

    Played for Team Sweden in both EHT-tournaments and has been really impressive in the SEL

    A good example of this is Mark Streit actually, he got drafted when he was 24,

    Patrick Cehlin for the Predators comes to mind for me.

    I could easily see Collin Bowman becoming a solid bottom pairing defenseman if given the chance.

    It's obviously Bobrovsky. He's a starter on a team leading the Eastern Conference. How far can you get as an undrafted 22y.o. goaltender?

    I guess i wouldn't call it recent, but Alex Burrows has done pretty well for himself.

    It also looks like the Canucks may have picked up another keeper in Chris Tanev.
