NotesEdit

1974: The 183rd pick of the draft was an invalid claim for the fictional player Taro Tsujimoto of the Tokyo Katanas. The pick stood as valid for several weeks until it was revealed that the player was made up. The Sabres still list the claim as valid as an inside joke.

1984: The 186th pick of the draft was an invalid claim for Eric Weinrich, who had yet to clear the minimum age restriction for eligible draftees. He was selected the following year by the New Jersey Devils.
