Ahh, Frederik Andersen. The Hurricanes version of Justin Schultz. That kid would have been in the NHL this year starting had he signed with Carolina instead of Anaheim, and I hope he gets buried on the depth chart for the Ducks behind Gibson for his lack of foresight. He didn't want to sign with Carolina because, supposedly, they had a starter set in stone with Cam Ward. Now he's in an organization with Hiller, Fasth, Gibson, etc.

But in fairness to the thread, I don't think two overage kids that were drafted really are fair to list. Andersen was an overage when we drafted him in 2010 and was a really odd case. Roy was second time eligible.
