Rising players

Here are some players whose draft position keeps going up every year.

To avoid a very tiny drop breaking a good streak, I considered a “rise” to be a rise OR a drop of less than 3%. So a guy who went 600-550-554-500-450-400 could still be said to be a player who has been on the rise all along.

5 straight rises:

Sergei Gonchar, 363-330-275-257-249-229
Eric Staal, 833-671-659-649-426-433
Ted Kennedy, 75-72-68-64-59
Scotty Bowman, 287-259-247-208-201
Marian Hossa, 511-415-374-288-241
Fred Shero, 359-363-372-373-369 (doesn’t really count! Interesting example of the system failing)
Bill Hajt, 530-522-506-455-408-416
Martin St. Louis, 514-430-374-312-248-183
Henrik Sedin, 1115-1114-900-589-339-286
Pat Egan, 606-587-531-431-325-323
