Did the Florida Panthers draft Alexander Ovechkin???

I know I'm very far behind in this story, but I just read that the Panthers used their last pick in the 2003 draft to take Ovechkin. They cited some sort of crazy loop hole that I'm still not entirely clear on (something about leap year days or something), but I can't seem to find any "official" information to confirm this event. Also, if this did indeed happen, what was the final ruling? I mean, I know it's clear that they didn't get him at this point, but I was just hoping for some insight on the situation.
