|... where every
day is draft day|
Site re-launched March 25, 2014
|THIS IS THE OLD HOME PAGE|
Enough time has passed. More than eight years after work on HockeyDraftCentral.com
stopped, it resumed in 2014. A new version of the site
has been launched
-- initially featuring only the players from the earliest drafts but still allowing users
to access other pages in the "older" format, which
was the site's look from 2000 to 2014.
|FINDING OLDER PAGES|
All existing URLs remain unchanged. Updates will be made to all existing,
older pages as they will begin to re-appear on the site in the new format.
The site also now has an associated
Twitter feed, which will enable
its followers to get updates on the pages added to the site.
|WHY THIS SITE EXISTS|
HockeyDraftCentral's mission has always been to tell the
stories of the men who were deemed great enough at their craft to
potentially perform at the highest level. Some became household names, but
many others who did not turn into stars went on to careers and lives beyond hockey that were
notable in their own right. Hockey is a
remarkable game with an unbelievably rich history, a culture all its own,
and the sports world's most passionate, dedicated fans. This site strives to
recognize thousands of individuals and forever keep them linked to
their draft classes.
• More About This Site
The nicest thing about this site has been that so many readers
have teaken time to drop a note with suggestions, further information about a player
listed here, or interesting notes that led to better
content for everyone. The Internet has changed a lot since this site
launched. There was very little interactivity back then, and even less of
what we now call social media. Although Internet trolls will never be
welcome in general, the open-door policy remains in effect, and what
readers have to say about this site can only help to make it better.
