The Captain's Blog: Drafted To Team Toews

by Mark Giordano / Calgary Flames

I'm happy to say that I've officially been drafted ahead of Alex Ovechkin!

Tonight was great, going through the whole All-Star Draft process and I'm thrilled to be a part of Team Toews with Johnny, who was selected to compete for our team in the Skills Competition.

I really like how our team breaks down, with some top notch forwards like Toews, Getz, Nash, Tyler Seguin, and John Tavares. We also have some offensive d-men with Shea Weber, Brent Seabrook, and Aaron Ekblad so I'm expecting a lot of goals from Team Toews on Sunday.

We've got great goaltending too, with Corey Crawford, Roberto Luongo, and Jaroslav Halak.

Tomorrow is the Skills Competition and I'm looking forward to seeing Johnny compete. He's got great hands so it's going to be fun to watch his events.

I'll check in after tomorrow's events. Go Team Toews!
