So, statistically speaking, that 5th round pick would've given us about a 9% chance to draft an NHL regular. Or if you wanna be pessimistic about it, there's a 91% chance the player wasn't going to be an NHL regular.

(248 games is considered the average length of a player's NHL career according to this site: http://www.quanthockey.com/Distribut...erLengthGP.php).
So it works out because P3L played in about 9% of our games this season.
