Feel free to file Stefan under "health issues" too.

Stefan had concussion issues from the day he was drafted, and eventually had hip problems that were so bad that his doctor told him that either he stops playing hockey or he won't be able to walk.

My vote:
Alexandre Volchkov - was 4th overall in the '96 draft. Had a cup of coffee with the Caps in 1999-00. Was out of hockey by 2003.

Honorary mention goes to former Habs first rounder Brent Bilodeau. He was the only 1st round pick in the '91 draft to not play in the NHL. Saw him a few times in the back half of his career when he was playing in the ECHL and his speed and positioning was nothing worth mentioning here.

Speaking of ECHL, is it too early to list A.J. Thelen in this category?
