47. Greg de Vries

Greg de Vries was traded from the Nashville Predators in October of 1998, and in his first two years with the Colorado Avalanche, he was a lower line Defenseman.  Still, he held his own end of the ice admirably.  The blueliner would gradually see more ice time, and de Vries would improve the offensive side of his game.  He would have 23 Points in the 2000-01 Stanley Cup winning season, and he would post 32 the year after, while also finishing fourth in Defensive Point Shares.

That would be de Vries’ last year with the Avs as he would sign with the New York Rangers as a Free Agent.  He scored 82 Points for the franchise.
