Players drafted twice in the 1st round

I've always wondered but never asked, is their any player other then Nick Boynton to get drafted in the 1st round twice? Boynton of course went 9th in '97 then 21 in '99.

Thanks!

He's the only one. At least a couple others have gone in the 1st and 2nd round -- Mathieu Chouinard, Matt Zultek.

Even more bizarre, Scott Parker went from being a 3rd rounder of the NJ Devils to being a 1st rounder of the Colorado Avalanche!

Parker showed great improvement during his last seasons in Kelowna tho and the Avs had something like 4 1st rounders and 3 2nd rounders. They wanted muscle with a bit of offensive upside and Parker was it.

In hindsight it was bad ofcourse since they missed out on Gagne, Fischer, Cheechoo, Gomez and even Erskine (going with needing muscle).

Boynton was actually supposed to turn into something a lot more than this enforcer type thing that he is now. I remember seeing him as a youngster and he impressed me. Then he just kind of...fell off...

Nick Boynton, born January 14,1979.

Played in a region with the minor/major split in youth hockey so he was always amongst the oldest if not the oldest on his team. The age edge disappears late junior/pro.

Good point, C1958. Boynton always seemed pretty strong, too, on the rink, wouldn't be surprised if maybe he matured quicker than others and it led to his standing out more. He did have a few month head start birthday wise.

The book Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell has a chapter or passage about how age affects development. It may be in one of his other books, but it was very interesting.

Yes, it was Tipping Point. Focused on the Medicine Hat Tigers (WHL), as I recall...

At a basic level the "Hockey Age" factor or Old/Young distinction in childhood development goes back generations, pre dating when I started playing hockey and grade school in the mid 1950s.

Today it is easier to study since the jurisdictional variances have slowly been reduced or have disappeared. Hockey Quebec adopted the calendar year as the hockey year within the last five years. Still present in various forms especially at the school level - Depending on the province or state high school/prep school ranges from a senior year of Grade 11 to Grade 13.

Given how bad the 99 draft was Boynton was a great pick at 21
