Take a look back at the 2000 NHL draft: We've ranked the top 10 forwards and top 10 defensemen by career NHL points and goalies by career NHL wins.
FORWARDS: Here are the top 10 highest-scoring forwards selected in the 2000 NHL draft, with draft position and NHL games played:
|FORWARDS||Draft position||NHL GP||NHL Points|
|Dany Heatley||2nd overall||869||791|
|Marian Gaborik||3rd overall||933||773|
|Scott Hartnell||6th overall||1109||647|

--Seven of the 10 highest-scoring forwards drafted in 2000 were first-rounders. The top two forwards picked, Dany Heatley and Marian Gaborik, have been the most productive, with Heatley leading the way even though he hasn't registered an NHL point in two years.
--The first round featured 21 forwards among the 30 selections, and 20 of those forwards made it to the NHL for at least a cup of coffee (and 14 have played more than 100 NHL games). Artem Kryukov, drafted by Buffalo 15th overall, is the lone first-round forward who never made it to the bigs.
--Scott Hartnell leads all players picked in the 2000 draft with 1,109 NHL games played.
