    Education

    Despite being a standout in college and the U.S. amateur ranks, Rafalski didn't draw interest from NHL scouts because he was considered too small to be a NHL defenseman. A player with his accomplishments would have been drafted nowadays, but in 1992, scouts were insistent on size, which Rafalski lacked. Therefore, he left the States to prove himself overseas as a professional.
