CBJ welcomed six new prospects at the 2018 NHL Draft

by Rachel Bules /

The Blue Jackets had a significant weekend in Dallas for the 2018 NHL Draft, where the team grew by six prospects in seven rounds. Above, first-round pick Liam Foudy dons his first Blue Jackets jersey.

In addition to Foudy, the Blue Jackets acquired three skillful forwards: Kirill Marchenko, Marcus Karlberg, and Trey Fix-Wolansky, chosen in the second, third, and seventh rounds, respectively. Swiss defenseman Tim Berni and goalie prospect Veini Vehvilainen were chosen in the sixth round.

Not all the action of the past week took place in Dallas, however. Josh Anderson had a cool encounter with boxing Hall of Famer Lennox Lewis.

Great to meet Boxing Hall of Famer @mrlennoxlewis �� �� ����

Meanwhile, Panarin is looking for recommendations as he travels in Japan while wearing a really awesome outfit.

Hey Nutivaara, we see you repping that Ohio State Buckeyes jersey all the way over in Finland, but we might need your help explaining why you hashtagged #katyperry in this picture...
