Gentlemen - Drew is updating the 2003 entry Draft picks, and could use a little help. We need to confirm the positions of the following players. Please review the list posted below (it's sorted by team) and reply post with the positions of your players. Thank you!

Guggisberg is a right shooting forward, so you can put him as a center or a RW.

The Blues selected Colin McDonald in the 3rd round, and he is indeed a RWer.

Dave Brown was an Ontario Jr. A goaltender that popped up on Redline's draft list at the last minute, prompting more than a few GMs to add him to their lists. :)

That's who I thought Mike Brown was. The goalie you're talking about, who's name I guess is Dave Brown, was an IceDogs draft pick, but refused to join the team (surprise, surprise). That's why he remained in Junior A for an extra year before heading to the US. In that case, who's Mike Brown (who I've listed as a G in drew's list...)??

Mike Brown is also a goalie who I believe played for Saginaw last year.

R.Anderson, T.Oksa and M.Næætænen are forwards... As they play in the A-jr.-league in Finland they are listed as Forwards.

I´m in Oslo, Norway now scouting for prospects and testing the local beers (Hansa and Ringnes), so that´s why there´s the "æ"... ;)

Don't feel too bad...the only reason I remember this stuff is because I stared at the CSB lists for hours in conjunction with the draft. ;)

After reading this post the other day I coincidently read an article that mentioned him I just wish I remembered what site I saw it on. It seems the original spelling is correct or at least that's how it was spelt in the article. Is there a possibility you are thinking of a different player with a similar name Dion?

Maybe Hasnain should clarify which player it is? Is this the guy they Red Line had as a sleeper in the pre-draft article? if so, then I'm pretty sure that I have the right spelling. And is this same person now playing for the London Knights, who now have Schremp I might add?

Dion is correct it is the same player that Red Line mentioned. I don't know exactly how his name is pronounced as some articles cover him as Karaga and some mention him as Karaha :dunno:

Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought only players ranked by Central Scouting were available to be drafted since we don't know who opted in? I didn't bother trying for him since I thought he wasn't eligible.

From the Yahoo message group:

3. Prospects eligible to be drafted include those on the CSB final
rankings. More generally, all North American players born between
January 1, 1983 and September 15, 1985 and all non-North American
players 18 years of age or older as of September 15, 2003 are
eligible. However, the league reserves the right to disallow any
unranked selections in the event the player opted out of the draft
year, and the team will not be compensated for the used pick. This
can be done retrocatively once the information becomes clear, so
select unranked players at your own risk. Please note that the league
will attempt to provide a list, prior to the draft, of those players
included in the final CSB rankings that have opted out of the draft.
If a CSB-ranked player has opted out of the NHL draft, yet has not
been identified in the league's list, he is eligible for the 2003
HFNHL draft. Also be aware that there are several players eligible
for the 2003 NHL Draft that have previously been drafted in the
HFNHL, and vice versa.
