The Minnesota North Stars selected Derian Hatcher in the first round of the 1990 NHL draft. It would turn out to be one of the franchise's finest picks. Unfortunately, Minnesota fans were not able to reap the full reward. Derian did become a franchise defenseman after the team moved to Dallas. He eventually became team captain, a title he held when the Stars won the Stanley Cup in 1999. He finished his career with stints in Philadelphia and Detroit, and was the second-to-last ex-North Star to remain active in the NHL (outlasted only by still-active Mike Modano).
