Junior B Players In The NHL

I was thinking about something and was curious how many players who have played Junior B have played in the NHL?

I know Wayne Gretzky played Junior B with the Toronto Nationals as a 14 year old. Though when he played Junior B, it was shortly after the 1970 move by the CAHA to split Junior A into "Major Junior A" (OHA/WCHL/QMJHL) and "Tier II Junior A" (along the lines of the SJHL/AJHL etc.). So I would assume the play then was higher than Junior B now. I'm also assuming that most player before the 1970 Junior A split, played Junior B as Junior B was the non-Memorial Cup teams. So I would say anybody playing Junior B prior to the 1970 Junior A split really doesn't count as that would mean anyone playing in the equivalent of the CJHL leagues today would be counted.
