High scoring Center for his high school team, headed for UConn. I guess if he ever plays for us, not a bad use for a 5th.

Led his HS team in scoring last year 26G, 52A in 46 games. Previous year was 90 points in 56 games, second on the team to first rounder Brandon Brisson.

Seems like they just had called a timeout cause that took awhile. 

How many time outs do they get? Last night Toronto ran out of time and they were just like "ok, you have to pick or call a time out". Running out of time meant absolutely nothing.

I wanted amirov - guy from salavat, reichel - german guy, trade for bad contract for 2nd round for mysak - guy from czech rep, another young russian guy from junior league.
Now i have guy from salavat, one german, one czech, one junior "russian".

Jamie Langenbrunner’s son Mason was drafted by Boston in the 5th. Man I’m getting old lol. EDIT: Brian Rolston’s kid too-  drafted by Colorado, also in the 5th, a few picks before Langs Jr. 

wow i havent thought ot Langenbrunner in awhile... trying to remember his face, Ben Shapiro's face came to mind first. Weird. They do kind of look alike though lol

this is what shakir mukhamadullin said when being interviewed by his club in the khl, hc salavat



🗨️Shakir Mukhamadullin: “I didn’t expect to be chosen under number 20”

Salavat defender commented on the first round of the NHL 2020 draft that ended tonight.

“I am very happy with the club that chose me! New Jersey is one of the best organizations and teams in the league. I am happy to be part of their family! "

- Did you follow the draft progress ?
- Woke up early in the morning before the draft. I followed every pick, I am very happy for all Russian players, and especially for Rodion Amirov. I was very worried. To be honest, I didn’t expect to be chosen under the 20th number, my heart beat very quickly. I was delighted and realized that in a couple of hours I was already for training (smiles).

- Whose congratulations were the first?
- Since the draft took place in Canada, the broadcast was a little late. Simultaneously with the words that I was drafted, agents from Canada called and congratulated, and then relatives and friends.

- What will change for you now?
- I think that there will be an incentive to train even more and work on yourself. And so now all forces and thoughts are directed to the current season, the goal is the Gagarin Cup!

He may be a decent hockey player but he's a terrible liar

Not as much as Marchand tho lol

Wonder if rats ever accuse each other of looking too Marchand-like.

Still sitting over here annoyed that we passed on Rossi.

I won't beat this dead horse much longer but.. man.  That one is going to come back to bite us imo.

If Holtz becomes a perennial 30 goal guy like he’s projected to, I won’t care.
