Notable players include Flames captain Jerome Iginla, Flyers goaltender Ray Emery, Nigel Dawes, Dustin Byfuglian, and enforcers Donald Brashear and Georges Laraque. Also, the great Grant Fuhr was the first black player in the hall of fame.

This question is difficult to answer as the AHL is the main development league for the NHL. While some gifted players come right out of junior, college or Europe and step right into the NHL, the vast majority of NHL players have played in the AHL at some point for varying amounts of time until they have developed their skills. There is, obviously, no rule about how many players can come from the minor league. NHL teams recall their players as they see a need.
