Drafted in 1997 and still playing in the NHL (out of 246 players) : Marleau, Thornton, Jokinen, Hossa, Hannan, Cooke, Brewer, Cleary, Morrow, Ference, Campbell, Luongo, Chimera, Corvo, Tallinder, Shawn Thornton and Clemmensen.

By the way, 16 years ago, Gretzky was still playing and the Czech hadn't won gold in Nagano yet.
