Round Pick Player Nationality College/junior/club team

Dispersal Draft Results[edit | edit source]

The Sharks selected 24 players from the North Stars.

  • The reason for the Dispersal Draft was attributed the fact that a compromise was implemented for the 1990–91 season. The previous owners of the North Stars, the Gund brothers were awarded an expansion team in the Bay Area, that would be called the San Jose Sharks. The Sharks would receive players via a dispersal draft with the North Stars.
