After five trades during Friday night's opening round of the NHL Entry Draft, the dealing didn't take long to resume on Day 2.
In fact, the deals started even before Saturday's second round began, with the Philadelphia Flyers acquiring a third-round pick next year from Pittsburgh in exchange for the rights to defenseman Dan Hamhuis, who can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
The Toronto Maple Leafs, who had dealt away their first- and second-round picks, got back into the second round by picking up the 43rd pick for Jimmy Hayes, picked 60th by the Leafs in the 2008 Entry Draft. General Manager Brian Burke had indicated he wanted to move up and give his scouts a chance to make some selections after missing out on the first round.
Hayes, who attends Boston College, is the older brother of Kevin Hayes, Chicago's first-round pick in this year's Entry Draft.
The Leafs used the 43rd pick to take Portland Winterhawks left wing Bradley Ross, the linemate of first-round picks Ryan Johansen (Columbus, No. 4) and Nino Niederreiter (NY Islanders, No. 5). He's the brother of Nick Ross, taken No. 30 in the first round by the Phoenix Coyotes three years ago. Bradley Ross had 27 goals and 68 points with the Winterhawks in 2009-10, his second season in junior hockey.
Carolina dealt the 46th pick, the 16th choice in the second round, to Edmonton for 21-year-old prospect Riley Nash, a center who has played three seasons at Cornell. The Hurricanes also acquired former first-round pick Bobby Sanguinetti, a 22-year-old defenseman, from the New York Rangers in exchange for a sixth-round pick (No. 157) this year and a 2011 second-rounder that originally belonged to Washington. Sanguinetti, picked No. 21 in 2006, spent most of the 2009-10 season with the Rangers' AHL team in Hartford, scoring 9 goals and 29 assists. He got his first taste of NHL action during a five-game callup with the Rangers, with no points and 4 penalty minutes.
The Hurricanes made a third trade when they dealt a seventh-rounder (No. 206) to Philadelphia for 23-year-old forward Jonathan Matsumoto, a third-round pick by the Flyers in 2006 who scored 30 goals for their AHL farm team, the Adirondack Phantoms, in '09-10.
Los Angeles jumped up to the 47th choice, the 17th in the second round, in a deal that sent the Kings' second-round pick (No. 49) and a fourth-rounder (No. 109) to the Avs. L.A. grabbed center Tyler Toffoli from the OHL's Ottawa 67s, while the Avalanche took Calvin Pickard, the top-rated North American goaltender.
Florida, which has been wheeling and dealing under new GM Dale Tallon, made another trade at the end of the round when it sent the 59th pick to Minnesota in exchange for the ninth pick in each of the next two rounds (Nos. 69 and 99). The Wild took Jason Zucker, a left wing with the U.S. National Under-18 team. He's one of the 13 players taken by the Panthers, the most of any team.
The only other trades involving a player came when Toronto dealt a fifth-round pick (No. 122) to Anaheim for forward Mike Brown, who had 6 goals, 1 assist and 106 PIM in 76 games for the Ducks in 2009-10. Anaheim used the pick to select forward Chris Wagner from South Shore of the Eastern Junior Hockey League. Boston sent forward Vladimir Sobotka to St. Louis for the rights to David Warsofsky, a defenseman who plays at Boston University. Also, Calgary sent a sixth-round pick to San Jose for Henrik Karlsson, a 26-year-old goaltender who plays in Sweden.
