3 Saskatoon Blades were selected in the draft. Stefan Elliott went in the 2nd round 49th overall to the Colorado Avalanche,Adam Morrison was selected by the Philidelphia Flyers in the 3rd round 81st overall,and the final player who was selected (by a Canadian team) is Gaelan Patterson and he was selected by the Calgary Flames in the 7th round 201st overall. A total of 31 WHL players were selected by NHL teams in this years draft.
The Toronto Maple Leafs had a certain flavor to their draft picks this year and that is the hometown and American flavor,and not that there is anything wrong with this and hopefully the ship is starting to go in the right direction now.... us Leaf fans can only wait and see.
