Sept 9--Nelson Pyatt

Nelson Pyatt

Selected by Detroit Red Wings round 3 #39 overall 1973 NHL Amateur Draft
Selected by Minnesota Fighting Saints round 5 #59 overall 1973 WHA Amateur Draft
In Oshawa (junior), the slender, left-handed centreman scored only 30 goals during his two years with the team, but he could skate very well. So, the Detroit Red Wings picked him up in the 1973 Amateur Draft.
But scoring goals didn't seem to be the issue with Pyatt. It was his defensive lapses that might explain why other NHL clubs were not eager to sign the centreman.

He is the father of current NHLers Taylor Pyatt and Tom Pyatt
