Top 5 Active Goalies Drafted Late

This is a list compiled of numerous goalies drafted in the 5th round or later. The majority of these goalies spent significant time in the AHL or affiliate leagues before breaking into the NHL. Each goaltender has at least one All Star Game Nomination. Some of these goalies are out of their prime in the league, but in terms of their career overall were at one point elite goaltenders. They are not listed in any particular order, but all have credentials to be or once been a star goalie in the NHL.
