    Jack Campbell knew he was going to be picked by the Dallas Stars. He may have been a bit unsure about it when defenseman Cam Fowler dropped unexpectedly to the Stars, but all along he just had the feeling that this was the organization he was going to. He couldn’t be happier. Campbell had a…

    Round 1 – 27th overall Phoenix Coyotes – Mark Visentin Niagara (OHL) The Coyotes were one of the other teams in the draft that seriously needed to upgrade at goaltender (depth wise) and had a lot of interest in Jack Campbell.

    Round 1 – 18th overall Nashville Predators – Austin Watson 6′ 4″, 185 – Left Wing, Peterborough (OHL) Austin Watson is a player that didn’t really shine until he was traded mid season to Peterborough, and instantly scouts were able to see just how special he can be.

    Round 1 – 8th overall Atlanta Thrashers – Alexander Burmistrov Center, Barrie (OHL) The Thrashers went with the smallest player in the draft (5-11, 147) but one has perhaps the rawest talent in the draft.

  25. 2010 NHL Entry Draft: Intrigue between Boston and Edmonton

    Jun 25, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    Here are the facts: The Boston Bruins want Taylor Hall. He’s idolized the Bruins and Bobby Orr (he wears #4 for a reason) and the Bruins want him. They think he’d fit better on the team and while they’ll certainly love to have Seguin, they don’t have room for another center. Except the Oilers are…
