I don't remember how good his first pre season was, but I think Holden also falls into this category.
The Canucks have never had the best of luck with their 1st round picks, surrendering to injury

- Josh Holden -
Quote:
This was in a Junior Game after the Canucks drafted him...
Holden suffered a potentially career-ending injury when an opponent's skate cut Holden on the back of his left wrist.
The resulting gash severed tendons and ligaments to such an extent that Holden was only able to move his baby finger afterwards
- Luc and his broken leg

- Hodgson and his "back" injury that set him back almost a full year of development

But there has also been success in their 1st round picks
The Sedins
Kesler
Schneider
