If the 1971 NHL Amateur Draft was not one of the deepest drafts, it was certainly a very fruitful one. Fifty of the players selected went on to have NHL careers. Three became Stanley Cup champions.

Being traded in the NHL – or any sport for that matter – is never easy. But surely the sting wears off a bit when you realize that you’ve been traded to the St. Louis Blues and get to play on a line alongside Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz. That’s where Brayden Schenn finds himself
