Help needed for a bet

A co-worker & I have a bet on the draft selection of Andrei Markov

I know he selected in 1998 draft 6th round 162 nd overall. If my memory stands correct ; he was selected has a winger ?!?!? My buddy says he was selected has a defenseman !

Can you help me win a 100$ by giving me a link so I can prove this guy wrong ?

Thanks for your help guys !

I actually think he was drafted as a forward. I don't have any proof but that does ring a bell. Not sure where you would find out.

Sorry dude you lose the bet:

He was drafted 162nd overall by the Canadiens in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft as a centre. While playing in Russia, he has made the switch to defense in order to see more icetime. After being considered one of the best defensemen in Russia, in 2000, he came over to North American

Both could very well be right.

That's very possible that he was listed as a Center come draft day but the scouting staff knew they were picking a d-man.

Not to mention that, wikipedia being, well, a WIKI, Red Alert's friend might be the one who submitted the information in the first place.

Alternatively, that also mean Red Alert could go in and fill in fake information to win his bet.

Wow Neil was picked 1 spot before Markov...Can you imagine if Ottawa woulda picked Markov? Their defensive core would be even more unbelievable.

Ya I re-read what you wrote and realized you were the one who thought he was drafted a forward. And you're welcome...enjoy the cash.

Habsworld says he switched to D in the '96-'97 season. He was drafted in '98.

Bet lost. Markov was converted to defense in 96-97, as previously posted. This link provides more details though.

Quote:
In 1996/1997 Andrei Markov was named to the Russian World Junior Championships squad where he played with many current NHLers such as Tampa Bay’s Andrei Zyuzin, Buffalo’s Maxim Afinogenov, Boston’s Sergei Samsonov, Washington’s draftee Alexander Volchkov, Dallas’ Roman Lyashenko and Dimitri Nabokov, Florida’s Oleg Kvasha, Pittsburgh’s Alexei Marozov, Calgary’s draftee Dmitri Vlasenkov and Detroit’s Yuri Butsaev.

The same season he was offered the job of defenseman by the new coach of the team Valerie Nikitin, who had been a famed forward and defensemen for Khimik Voskresensk. He realized that if he remained a center he would play only on the fourth scoring line. It meant he would appear on the ice only 5-6 shifts per game and no more. As a defenseman his chances to earn a lot of ice time were much higher. He accepted the proposal of the head coach and made the starting lineup. At that moment his breathtaking career began.
