By way of figuring out when players drafted tonight will start having an impact on the Texas Stars, here's a quick look at the breakdown of when this year's squad was drafted.
(Note: I've left out a number of free agent and veteran players like Fortunus, Morin, Mueller, etc.)
|Player||Year||Round||Overall||Rookie?||Late season add|
^ - Jokipakka wasn't a rookie because of his time in Europe, but this was his first year in the AHL.
So if you look at this chart, you can expect that players drafted this year in the 2014 Draft will start to filter into the AHL as ATOs in 2016 and have a bigger impact in 2016-17.
