A+ googler here, nothing turned up. If it's out there it does not want to be found.

Is there even a picture of him at his draft year at least?

WOW he nailed it, 26-25 goals last 2 seasons and Selke nominee in both.

lol at the person who said he has no hands.

Kesler could be an average 1st line centre on many teams right now.

Here are a bunch of hockey card images of Kesler, haven't found any draft yet.

(Fav player Pavel Bure)



He is wearing a tie under his jersey in this image, possibly from the draft.

One of the few good picks made by Burke.

But come on... how many people actually thought he would do this well? So many fans were convinced back then that this guy was going to be an elite 3rd liner with average 2nd line potential, nothing more.

I'm glad I was wrong.

Well let's be honest.. 99% of posters on here (myself included) form their opinion based on reports and other media.. and a brief trip to youtube or watching the world juniors.

Representing the younger fans here, why did he start with #20?

Jason King was wearing #17 when Kesler debuted in 2003.

King left in 2004 though and Kesler didn't switch to 17 until 2007. I personally don't know why he switched. Maybe so Jeff Cowan could have his number?

It's weird to think of him wearing #20. It's like Bertuzzi and #27 or Bieksa and #25.

^Add to the list Naslund wearing #22 when he first arrived here.

This is actually a pretty hilarious read (year before he broke out offensively). Many of the posters are some of the "high fliers" we have around today.

Note: I think I do mention in the thread that I was one who was claiming that not letting Kesler go on the Philly Offersheet (for the eventually 32nd overall pick) was a mistake.

I love that people look at things like this with Kesler and how people reacted after a few years of the Sedins and still think that Hodgson is going to bust

I seriously hope this fan base stops freaking out sometime soon

We've been spoiled by these Crosby's, Ovechkin's etc... Its a fact most of our prospects take time to develop

if you're expecting guys like Kesler and Burrows to provide offense, they'll suck and hurt this team more than help it... right now we have 2 elite checking forwards (both of them IMO played among the top 30 checking forwards in the game last year).... they give this team an edge in that role.

Take them out of that role and put them in your top 6, and not only do you lose that edge you had in the shutdown role, but you don't really help the team offensively because they'll be below average offensive contributors for top 6 players....
Ooops. There's a couple of "big swings and misses".

Here and elsewhere people thought Kes had stone hands when he first made the team. I'm surprised he turned out to be a pretty good offensive centerman as well.

Only the Rangers could screw up a pick in that first round.

Stajan 2nd line potential, Kesler 3rd line potential. Apparently.
