Bruins to Pick 9th in 2011 NHL Draft

2011 nhl draft

With the playoffs about to start, and the focus clearly on the Montreal Canadiens, the Boston Bruins learned that they will pick ninth overall in the 2011 NHL Draft on June 24th.

This pick is the last of two first round picksthat the Bruins received by trading  Phil Kessel to Toronto in the summer of 2009.   With their first of the two picks, the Bruins drafted Tyler Seguin with the second overall selection in last years draft.

With the Bruins clearly in need of a true goal scorer for the future,  Bruin’s management must do the necessary homework to ensure a great selection.

The lottery determines the first 14 spots of the draft, with the rest of the slots being decided after the playoffs.

Here are the results thus far:

  1. Edmonton Oilers
  2. Colorado Avalanche
  3. Florida Panthers
  4. New Jersey Devils
  5. New York Islanders
  6. Ottawa Senators
  7. Atlanta Thrashers
  8. Columbus Blue Jackets
  9. Boston Bruins – from Toronto Maple Leafs
  10. Minnesota Wild
  11. Colorado Avalanche – from St. Louis Blues
  12. Carolina Hurricanes
  13. Calgary Flames
  14. Dallas Stars

The Edmonton Oilers are once again drafting first overall despite the New Jersey Devils winning the lottery.  Draft rules only allow the lottery winning team to move up four spots maximum in the draft.
