Robbie Russo was drafted in the fourth round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Islanders - but in their hurry to fill organizational needs on the blue line, they filled up roster spots that could have potentially been his by now.

The Toronto Maple Leafs defensive prospect Max Everson was drafted in the seventh round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, but his chances to slip on a blue jersey just got a little bit slimmer.
The same, unfortunately, might be said of Patrick McNally - a fourth round pick from 2010 for the Vancouver Canucks.
Everson and McNally were the two NHL prospects who skated only seven games for Harvard University during the 2012-2013 season, following their involvement in the 2012 Harvard Cheating Scandal -- a controversy over whether or not students in the 2012 Government 1310 class (Introduction to Congress) had collaborated on a take-home final exam. Nearly half of the 279-person class (roughly two percent of the entire freshman student body at Harvard in spring of 2012) had investigations brought against them, with an estimated seventy of the 125 students being forced to withdraw.
