DALLAS - The five-player trade the Carolina Hurricanes made with the Calgary Flames was the headline stealer on the second day of the 2018 NHL Draft, but meanwhile, the club continued to assemble their latest crop of draft picks.

The Canes made five selections over six rounds on Saturday, bringing their total haul from this year's draft to six players.

Among the five selected on Saturday were two centers - one with a strong hockey lineage and another who the team hopes will mature physically in the next few years - in addition to a winger, a defenseman and a goaltender. The Hurricanes did have the second-to-last selection in the draft but traded it to the New York Rangers in exchange for Boston's seventh-round pick next year.

"You can never check all the boxes, but given the picks we had and where we were picking, I think we came out of it in pretty good shape," said Tony MacDonald, the Canes Director of Amateur Scouting. "We came out of it with some guys we really like. That's always important."

DALLAS - As the Carolina Hurricanes approached the stage at American Airlines Center to make the second pick of the 2018 NHL Draft, there wasn't much intrigue as to what name was going to be called out.

It was going to be Andrei Svechnikov.

That much was known - or at least figured - nearly two months ago when the Hurricanes defied the odds to leapfrog their way from 11th all the way to two in the first-round draft order.

The team had done its homework. They knew they had a player on their hands.
