Jonas Hoglund

10th round, 222nd overall, 1992

His best years came with the Toronto Maple Leafs, but he did bring Val Bure to Calgary in a trade with the Habs.

German Titov

10th round, 252nd overall, 1993

Scoring 157 goals and 377 points in 624 NHL games, Titov was a great pick in the 10th round and provided more offence than anyone expected.

Brett Sutter

6th round, 179th overall, 2005

Should push to be on the NHL roster this season. Yeah, he’s Darryl Sutter’s son, but he is proving to be a strong selection that late.

Robert Svehla

4th round, 78th overall, 1992

Another of those cases where a Flames pick went on to help another team (the Florida Panthers), but Calgary had a good hunch about the defenceman.

Robert Reichel

4th round, 70th overall, 1989

He was a serious scoring threat in the early 1990s before his head got too big. Scored

40 goals in back-to-back seasons from 1992-94.

David Moss

7th round, 220th overall, 2001

He had a rough season last year, but any time you get a

20-goal scorer in the last round of a draft, it’s a solid selection.

Stu Grimson

7th round, 143rd overall, 1985

He’s a scary guy. We had to include him on this list. An intimidating heavyweight isn’t as easy to find in the draft as you think.
