Odds of making it to the NHL

The study by Jim Parcels, a 13-year veteran of minor and junior hockey in the province, found that of the 360,000 or so kids born in Ontario in 1968, 32,000 went on to play minor hockey of some kind. Of those, 223 were drafted into the Ontario Hockey League and 65 were subsequently drafted into the NHL (there were 12 rounds then instead of nine as it is today).

Only eight — or one in 4,000 — have played at least 400 games in the NHL or 180 games in net

At my son's hockey rink there is a poster about how parents should relax and enjoy watching kids' game and not expect them to make NHL because chance is 1/43,000.
