Blues Won't Have 1st-Round Pick in 2011

by Chris Pinkert / St. Louis Blues
The Blues didn't win Tuesday's NHL Draft Lottery, so their first-round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft (No. 11 overall) will be transferred to the Colorado Avalanche as part of a trade that brought Chris Stewart and Kevin Shattenkirk to St. Louis.


In exchange, the Blues will get Colorado's second-round pick at this year's Draft.

Barring a trade, the Blues won't have a first-round pick this summer.

The order of selection for the first 14 picks was determined by final season standings and Tuesday's lottery. The remaining order of selection for the other 16 clubs will be determined based on postseason results.

The 2011 NHL Entry Draft will be held at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN. The first round will take place on Friday, June 24 and the subsequent rounds (two through seven) will take place on Saturday, June 25.
