They did draft him. Their reasoning was that Ovechkin was born I believe two days after the cut-off for the draft, but since there has been more than 2 leap years since his birthday, it would somehow make him two days older than he actually was, making him eligible for the draft. This may have worked, but they forgot that to be draft eligible, you have to opt-in to the draft, unless you are over a certain age. Good try by the Panthers, but it didn't work.
