The NHL Supplemental Draft was a draft that was established by the National Hockey League as an offshoot of the NHL Entry Draft between 1986 and 1994. The Supplemental Draft was used by teams to select collegiate ice hockey players who were not eligible for the standard Entry Draft. Unlike the Entry Draft, most players selected never played in the NHL, although a few "diamonds in the rough" went on to NHL careers. The players selected in the Supplemental Draft who enjoyed NHL careers of over 100 games are John Cullen, Bob Kudelski, Dave Snuggerud, Shawn Chambers, Jamie Baker, Todd Krygier, Chris Tancill, Cory Cross, Steve Rucchin, Steve Guolla, and Steve Martins. The Supplemental Draft was discontinued by the 1995 collective bargaining agreement.
