Eddie The Eagle.

This said... I think a prerequiste for being a "late round gem" is to be drafted.

Adam Oates was the biggest undrafted gem ever that I can recall.

Peter Stastny was another unless im really mistaken.....

NHL.com has a list of some from the 90's today...

We know the dramatic stories of Detroit finding Pavel Datsyuk 171st in 1998 and Henrik Zetterberg 210th in ‘99. But here’s a sampling of some other late gems:

188 -- Manny Legace in 1993.

204 -- Tomas Kaberle in 1996.

217 -- Tim Thomas in 1994.

219 -- Evgeni Nabokov in 1994.

226 -- Tomas Vokoun in 1994.

239 -- Tobias Enstrom in 2003.

250 -- Kimmo Timonen in 1993.

He's far from having made it big, but Sergei Kostitsyn was drafted 200th overall in 2005. He came over, dominated the OHL for a few seasons, two years later he's in the show to stay.

Would he have gone undrafted if his brother Andrei wasn't on the Canadiens?
