Backes, Eriksson go in 17th round
33. David Backes, St. Louis, W (Team Staal)
34. Loui Eriksson, Dallas, W (Team Lidstrom)


Ryan Kesler makes the pick for Team Staal and goes with Backes because he doesn't want to get hit by the guy who swears he will hit someone in the All-Star Game on Sunday.

As for Lidstrom, he simply had to pick Eriksson, a fellow Swede.
Quote of the Day

I didn't even know how to celebrate. I threw my hands up, they gave me a hug, so I guess that's all I needed.
