To say Darren Archibald took an unconventional route to becoming part of an NHL organization would be an understatement.
After going undrafted three times and unsuccessfully attending training camps with two NHL teams Archibald’s quixotic journey to an NHL contract finally ended on December 13, 2010, when the Canucks signed the big forward to an entry-level deal.

Sebastian Erixon is a late-bloomer. An offensive defenseman who shoots left, but plays the right side, he has spent the last three seasons with Timra of the SEL. Last year he brokeout offensively, scoring five goals and adding fifteen assists in forty-four games to lead all Timra defenseman in scoring. His breakout season clearly impressed the Canucks, who signed the twenty-one year old (he'll turn twenty-two on September 12th) to an entry-level deal last April. Based on my google searches, he's a very intriguing pick up.

Nicklas Jensen was Rookie of the Year in Denmark in 2009-10, then led all Oshawa Generals rookies in
all categories when he moved to the OHL last year. He's impressed more than a few people.

Nicklas Jensen was born in Denmark, raised in Denmark, began played hockey in Denmark, and even played for the Danish national U18 and U20 teams.
But Nicklas Jensen is far more Canadian than you would think.
