Note:
In 1992, the Canadian Hockey League (WHL, OHL and QMJHL) introduced an Import Draft to allocate the services of European players. Consequently, Europeans who are drafted by NHL clubs while playing for a CHL team are listed as being drafted from their respective CHL leagues, not as international players. The same policy applies to European players who may be drafted while playing in any other North American leagues.
