Hello Keith Aucoin, Nick Foligno, Mathieu Perreault, Matt Halischuk, Gilbert Brule, Benoit Pouliot, Daniel Carcillo, ...
None are considered top 6 forwards, but give them ice time and they might surprise
TSN did a little story about it. I can't remember the name of it for the life of me, but it's how many shots for you're on the ice, compared to the amount against.
I don't know of any teams that have incorporated this strategy for drafting and trades though.
