Has this type of draft trade ever happened in the NHL:

Trading a draft pick for a round higher the following year?

It happens on occasion in the NFL, but I haven't been following the NHL draft for that long, but my impressions are that you are lucky if you get even one player that ends up making your team from each draft. And after the first 5 picks or so, you are lucky if you get an eventual third line player in the first round (or maybe I need do more "research" on past drafts)

Just wondering if the Jets could possibly trade one of their seconds for a first next year, or for a first in 2015 and hope that pick turns out to be a top selection. Maybe this trade is even more enticing for teams this year, if the draft is deemed "deep".

Thoughts?
