Seriously, I would have taken Chris Drury, like, a year ago if I had remembered him. I don't know how he fell off my radar.




The Detroit Red Wings select Scott Hannan (1979) as their final defenseman. He will play on the 2nd pairing with Ulf Samuelsson. It came down to him, two other bigger names from the 1990s, and another younger player.




The Detroit Red Wings also select Manon Rheaume (1972).

And last Tuesday she became the first female goaltender to play in a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game, albeit an exhibition contest.

The wiry, slender-faced Rheaume stopped 15 of 18 shots before a pulled leg muscle forced her to leave midway through the second period. The Trois-Rivieres Draveurs, for whom she played, were leading the Saint-Jean Lynx 4-3 at the time and eventually won 6-5.

She has compiled the third-best average among the six goaltenders invited to the Draveur camp. One of the six netminders has already been cut because "Manon was better than he was," Drapeau explained.

Rheaume has no aspirations for a professional hockey career. She has registered to attend university in January and is planning to be a teacher. But she has earned plenty of praise for what she has accomplished on the ice in recent weeks.

But Manon Rheaume became the first woman ever to play in a regularly scheduled major junior game.

Rheaume, a goaltender with the Trois-Rivieres Draveurs, was called in to replace goalie Jocelyn Thibault midway through the second period in a game last night against the Granby Bisons of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The match was tied 5-5.

The 2,025 spectators rose to their feet and chanted "Manon, Manon, Manon," as the 19-year-old woman made her historic skate towards the net.

Still, Rheaume, who played in the Quebec major junior hockey league last season, has exceeded expectations. "She's not out of place," said the Lightning's vice-president of communications Gerry Helper. "In fact, she's been pretty good. We didn't know what to expect, but she has made some major-league saves."

Rheaume, a training-camp tryout, has played three periods. She recorded a shutout and allowed three goals in each of the two other periods.

The 20-year-old goaltender became the first woman to play in one of the four major pro sports leagues last night when she started for the National Hockey League expansion Tampa Bay Lightning against the St. Louis Blues in an exhibition game.

Rheaume led the team onto the ice to a standing ovation from the crowd in the less-than-full Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall, which seats just over 10,000.

The opportunity, not the historical significance, was what made it so special for Rheaume, who began playing hockey with her brothers as a 5-year-old and often dreamed of reaching the NHL.

"For me, it's just a chance to play," she said before the game. "I want to see what I can do. If I don't try, then I don't know what I can do."

"I always had to fight for equality because I was a girl."

As such, Rheaume said she had no qualms about accepting the tryout with Tampa Bay, although many skeptics dismissed the move as a publicity stunt.

"The guys were reluctant at first but, after the first practice, I was respected and accepted. I didn't go to practice in makeup, to flirt, I went there to play as hard as everyone else," she said.

Any time a person becomes the first to do something - whether male or female, athlete or astronaut - it's seen as having been contrived to attract attention. So some people will dismiss it as having no other meaningful purpose. And if it's a woman entering male-only territory it attracts a media feeding frenzy.

What should we be making of this one, this woman in the NHL? Rheaume is an adult, capable of making her own decisions. She wasn't being exploited. She was offered an opportunity to gauge her hockey ability at a top level. So she took it.

In many respects, Rheaume's trip into the male hockey domain represents a microcosm of the female athlete's lot in the sports world. Like many women athletes, Rheaume has had to put up with a lot of silly questions, a lot of sexist comments and a lot of people suspicious of her motives. And, whether she likes it or not, she's expected to be a champion of women's rights.

Rheaume maintains all she wants to do is play hockey and see how good she can be at the professional level.

I'm going to use her as a backup to divert media attention away from my skaters after a big loss. She's the embodiment of Chris Pronger stealing pucks.

Devils select an offensive defenseman who would give up his great hair later in his career to develop a more well-rounded game.

Mathieu Schneider, D

The Colorado Avalanche select, Jamie Langenbrunner, RW . He'll help do the dirty work with Stamkos and an undrafted left winger.



Excellent Bio

I'm really surprised that Liba is the first non-NHL Euro to go (or second if you include Larionov), but I guess his Golden Stick record makes it plausible.

I think it's his 2-way game that makes him be selected over the guy I suspect you're thinking of

It's not even just that other guy; it's just about anyone. I don't think most of us even heard of Liba until MadArcand profiled him 2 years ago

Truth be told, my knowledge of non-NHL players leave much to be desired.I had Liba in the last ATD and thought he fitted in nicely on my 4th line with Kopitar and Guerin.There's obviously one player playing the same position as Liba that was available and better, but I decided not to go down that road.It could be that I missed another better non-NHL player, but either way I don't think it changes much given he's my 12th forward (though I suspect he's higher than that in a vacuum).
