Southern California represented in 15th round
29. Corey Perry, Anaheim (Team Staal)
30. Anze Kopitar, Los Angeles (Team Lidstrom)


A pair of SoCal boys go in the 15th round, and neither is easy to play against.

Perry could be a sleeper pick as the MVP in Sunday's game. He just does everything well and it seems like he would be the ideal underrated player to take on Sunday.

Kopitar could be in that mix, too. He's not well known enough by hockey fans, so be sure to watch him Saturday in the Skills competition and Sunday in the game because he's one of the top players in the League.
Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
