  • The Rangers prospect was in the same draft class as Pavel Brendl (1999), in fact, just five selections below. However, unlike Brendl, Jamie Lundmark played with the Rangers, spending three seasons. He registered 30 points in 114 games.

    After the 2005-2006 season, he spent the next five years of his career bouncing between four other teams (Phoenix Coyotes, Calgary Flames, Los Angeles Kings, Toronto Maple Leafs). In 295 NHL games, Lundmark scored 40 goals and 59 assists.

    Lundmark has been playing in Europe for the past four seasons.

    Key players passed over by the Rangers in draft class: Martin Havlat, Taylor Pyatt, Tim Connolly
