College Players in the NHL - how many does your school have


Recommended Posts

Ok, people are always saying their school has the most in the pros.

Lets find out. List them out for your team.

How about 5 games as a minimum? Then we can see if its a fluke.

Brooks/Shore - Sioux

Arch - Cloud

Bear/me Gophs

Solbes - UMD

Byrce - Dunwoody

Wis/Denver/BC/BU - who knows, thats gonna take awhile.

My guess is that the Gophs have the most with 17 or 18

Wisc 13

Denver 12

UND 11.

I have no idea beyond that.

Get to work

Lets just get it on, Gophers vs Sioux alumi game! Two lines and 4 D. Sioux have a killer first line (as do the gophers) but gophs have way way better D, so many that they have to play some on the 2nd line.

1st line

Kessel Wheeler Vanek

Martin Leopold

2nd line

Goligoski Okposo Leddy

Ballard Johnson


1st line

Oshie Toews Parise

Greene Lee

2nd line

Stafford Zajac Frattin/Blake

Chorney Commodore

I plugged these names into a super compuer, gophers win 6-3.

I agree with the gophers having the better defensemen but UND's forward has got the Gophs beat with forwards. Not even close there. UND second is better than the Gophs first line.

Couple more have played in the past but have been down in the minors for a while. Most of them played for the Hurricanes. Then again they had Bret Hedican who was really good.

Interesting slide show of the 50 biggest flops to come out of college hockey


Good list but how do you leave off Mike Crowley, let alone keep him out of the top 10. He averaged over 50pts a year as a D-man for 3 years before doing nothing in the NHL, dude was unreal in college.
