Scott Metcalfe is a member of the Edmonton Oilers first round draft pick flops club. Unfortunately, that's not a very good thing. Other members include Selmar Odelein, Kim Issel, Peter Soberlak, Francois Leroux, Jason Soules and Scott Allison. Not a very elite group.
Metcalfe was never expected to be a superstar. He was drafted because he showed good grit and work ethic with decent skating and scoring ability with the Kingston Canadians and Windsor Spitfires of the OHL. He was also a very responsible defensive forward for a player at the junior level. Oilers scouts figured that he could one day replace rugged Oiler third/fourth liner Dave Hunter - a very solid and capable, though underappreciated NHLer.
Obviously things never panned out for Metcalfe. He dressed for just two games with the Oilers before being traded to Buffalo. He spent 3 1/2 years in the Buffalo organization, mostly in the minors. He was recalled for 17 games over the duration of his stay with the Sabres. He scored 1 goal and 2 assists whil picking up 13 PIM.
Metcalfe would embark on a long career in the minor leagues and in Europe.
