Karlsson last D-man to go, Havlat to Team Lidstrom

27. Erik Karlsson, Ottawa, D (Team Staal)
28. Martin Havlat, Minnesota, W (Team Lidstrom)


Karlsson is the last D-man chosen. Staal had one more round to nab him, but he went with him early.

Havlat, a replacement player here for the injured Ales Hemsky, will be motivated to play for Nicklas Lidstrom. He played against him while in Chicago and still does as a member of the Wild. Havlat is having a solid season for the Wild, who are also playing some seriously good hockey lately.
