Karlsson is the last D-man chosen. Staal had one more round to nab him, but he went with him early.
Havlat, a replacement player here for the injured Ales Hemsky, will be motivated to play for Nicklas Lidstrom. He played against him while in Chicago and still does as a member of the Wild. Havlat is having a solid season for the Wild, who are also playing some seriously good hockey lately.
It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
