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

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
