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

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.

— Forward Scott Hartnell on his upcoming season with the Columbus Blue Jackets
