Question: NHL Amateur Draft

I was thinking about the NHL amateur / entry draft today, and this thought crossed my mind:

Has there been a year where a NHL club did not select a player at all? What year was it, and which club?

One time 1983 the St. Louis Blues. They were in a conflict over who owned the team and so with no clear ownership they did not make a pick in the draft.

It is worth Noting they made the playoffs every season after the 1983 draft except last year.

Thanks for the answer! Pretty interesting, boycotting a chance to invest in the future of the club. Looks like the Blues did OK for 20+ years.

I was at that draft and it was weird. There was a table set up on the floor of the Forum for them but it was empty. They had already dealt away their first and second rounders, I believe so it was not devastating but I remember Ron Caron trading for extra picks the following season to try to make up a bit for the loss of prospects on the depth chart.
