This Day in NHL History 1998

June 26

Nashville Predators selected 26 players (one from each NHL team) in their Expansion Draft.

From the Pittsburgh Penguins
the Hrkac Circus

Tony Hrkac
89/90 OPC #64

Received blue ink signature TTM.

Pittsburgh owned his rights briefly after acquiring him and Bobby Dollas from Edmonton for Josef Beranek. I guess each team had to lose one player with some kind of NHL experience to Nashville. This way they weren't really losing anybody from their projected roster. He was then traded on July 9th to the Dallas Stars for future considerations.
