    I thought the draft started at 11 AM? Is that central?

    Mattias Samuelsson it is. USNTDP - 6'4"; 218.

    That is an ABSOLUTE UNIT.

    Like it. Hurts seeing Berggren going one pick later though.

    But I guess this really helps our D depth, which is still needed.

    Really hurts hearing the talking heads call him a more skilled Arvidsson. I would have preferred Berggren but it's done now.

    Bode Wilde, Jared McIsaac and Samuelson were the three best remaining D. I think we are going to be glad we went D here.
