95th overall:
Traded to MIN, then OTT

124th overall (ANA):
Colorado Avalanche pick — D Raymond Macias
New pick — C Darren Helm (132nd to DET)

Raymond Macias appeared in a total of seven NHL games. Most of his career was spent in the AHL, but he also took a trip over to Germany and spent the 2014-15 campaign with the ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies.
Detroit Red Wing Darren Helm’s career has been quite a bit more successful. He never exceeded his role as a bottom line forward, but that doesn’t mean that he isn’t a valuable player for the Wings. To this day, he has played 366 NHL games and there is likely more to come.

The Colorado Avalanche’s 2005 fifth round pick was traded to Carolina.
