High-scoring D-men go in 12th round
23. Kris Letang, Pittsburgh, D (Team Staal)
24. Keith Yandle, Phoenix, D (Team Lidstrom)

Two high-scoring blue-liners are off the board. Good picks on both sides.

Yandle is on a 9-game point streak and leads all defensemen in scoring, but not by much over Letang.
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
