|1984 NHL DRAFT PICK|
||Made in 11th round|
No. 225 overall by Philadelphia Flyers
|Not paying full attention to the selections ahead of them,
Philadelphia representatives called the name of Czech defenseman Petr Rucka
of Prague Sparta with their 11th-round pick, which would have officially
been No. 225 overall in the draft. Rucka, however, had already been picked
by Calgary, 25 selections earlier at No. 200 overall in Round 10. In keeping
with draft rules, the Flyers were not allowed to announce another player
with their pick and therefore had to forfeit it.|
"I'm not upset," Flyers assistant general manager Gary Darling, the man
running Philadelphia's draft table, told The Hockey News after the
draft. "He's a kid you draft just in case he ever defects. We couldn't see
the bottom of the board and they hadn't delivered the ninth-round list yet
to our table."
