The rest of the NHL Draft

Emerson Etem was selected 29th overall by the Anaheim Ducks( See previous post)
Tyler Pitlick was selected 31st overall by the Edmonton Oilers
Tyler Bunz was selected 121st overall in the 5th round by the Edmonton Oilers

List player goaltender SAM BRITTAIN was selected in the 4th round 92nd overall by Florida


----------

Edit
With Pitlick and Bunz going to Edmonton I found an article in the Edmonton Journal that captures the thoughts of the scouts who drafted both players.
http://www.edmontonjournal.com/opinion/Edmonton+Oilers+grab+Tyler/3206328/story.html

Excerpt
"The Oilers thought seriously of taking Pickard, who played 62 games in Seattle, but felt Bunz had the same upside and they could get him later. So, they moved on Hamilton."

"Bunz is a 17-year-old who carried the mail in Medicine Hat," said MacGregor. "Willie Desjardins said he was one of the reasons why they beat Kootenay in the first round of the playoffs.

Going camping for a few days. The CHL Import draft is on Tuesday but I wont be anywhere with internet access, so I wont be able to dig up any info on the new selections.

who the hell is this Pitlick kid and when did he make the team

Last year he played in the NCAA but has decided he wants to go the WHL route, and his rights are held by the Tigers.

If a 2nd round NHL draft pick cant make a whl team...... well you get the drift.
