Day two is here and the picks are going to be fast and furious. We are going to try to keep you updated as soon as news breaks. Keep checking this post throughout the morning to get the latest updates.
1:04 PM –Matt Mistele was just chosen 180th overall by the L.A. Kings.
12:35 PM – Approaching the 160th pick in the draft and we still have Mistele and Rathgeb still on the board.
12:07 PM – Busy day here in Philly for the Whalers as Alex Nedeljkovic is taken by Carolina in the second round 37th overall being the second goalie taken in the draft this year.
Ned would be the only Whaler to go in the second round. In the third round Connor Chatham was selected with the 71st overall pick by the New Jersey Devils and Alex Peters was taken four picks later by the Dallas Stars.
The next Whaler to get drafted would have to wait until the fourth round, but I don’t think he minds as Josh Wesley gets selected by the team that his father has a long storied legacy with. Wesley ends up being the 96th overall pick in the draft and the second Whaler to go the Carolina Hurricanes this draft.
Of course Whalers getting drafted to the Hurricanes is obviously not a new thing. Levi, Mahalak, Terry, Bellemore are just a few players that come to mind. It makes sense as both teams are owned my Peter Karmanos Jr.
Carolina takes a Whaler. *rolls eyes*
