Tampa Bay owns two selections in the seventh round of the 2019 NHL Draft and used the first of those two to take Russian forward Mikhail Shalagin, a 19-year-old, left-handed-shooting winger from Moscow.

The 6-foot-4, 185-pound Shalagin played last season for Spartak 2 of the Russian junior league and scored 48 goals in 43 games. He also recorded 27 assists, 75 points and a plus-31 rating.

The Lightning also hold the 213th pick to close out their selections at the 2019 draft.
