Final Finals Numbers: Former NCAA Hockey Players

Throughout the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, I compiled a list of NHL hockey players that participated in at least one season of division I college hockey, which competed in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The players were listed by their NHL team. These were players that played in at least “one” Stanley Cup Playoff game during in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs. I have also listed their point totals as well.
