Right-winger Alex Stojanov played briefly with the Vancouver Canucks and Pittsburgh Penguins in the 90s. He was a top amateur prospect who never developed into the impact power forward in the NHL.
Born in Windsor, Ontario, Stojanov was chosen seventh overall by the Canucks in 1991 after a 25 goals season with the OHL's Dukes of Hamilton. He returned to junior to compete for the Guelph Platers then saw spot duty in parts of two years with Vancouver. In March 1996 the Canucks fleeced the Penguins by acquiring future scoring star Markus Naslund for the enigmatic Stojanov. He played 45 games over two years with his new club before he was relegated to the minors.
