Boston Bruins: Top 30 Draft Picks of All Time

6 of 31

26. Glen Wesley – 1987 – 3rd Overall

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Wesley was one of those players who got off to a great start in Boston, but earned his Stanley Cup with another team. Wesley was fortunate enough to go on to two Stanley Cup Finals with Boston (1988, 1990). Wesley played seven of his twenty years in Boston.

While Wesley did contribute to the Bruins as a player, he was also valuable to the team as a trade. Wesley was traded to the Hartford Whalers before the start of the 1994-95 season. The Whalers (soon to become the Carolina Hurricanes) gave up their 1995, 1996, and 1996 first round draft picks for the defenseman. The first round pick in 1997 was Sergei Samsonov

He finally won his Stanley Cup with the Hurricanes in 2006.
