Blades Select 2 At CHL Import Draft.

Today the Saskatoon Blades picked Right Winger Andrej Stastny with their 1st pick,57th Overall. Stastny was a team mate of Marek Viedensky at the past World Junior Championships here in Saskatoon. He is 19 years old and stands 6'3, and weighs in at 212 lbs.

in the 2nd round the Blades traded picks with Prince George,sending an 8th round selection in the 2012 Bantam Draft to Prince George, in exchange for the Cougars 2nd round pick in this years Import Draft (61st Overall.)

They selected Matej Stransky: a 17 year old Centre from the Czech Republic. He stands 6'2 and weighs 190lbs. I believe his agent is also the same agent that Jyri Niemi has.

A good move today moving up in the 2nd round,and only giving up an 8th rounder in 2012.

They expect both players to be here when training camp starts on August 25th.

I am getting excited already. It is my birthday tomorrow,and Canada day the next day. So everyone enjoy Canada day and the long weekend.
