The Flames pick centre Mark Jankowski 21st overall

23 Jun

But what blockbuster deals did they make you ask? Where is Jay Bouwmeester playing next season? Jokinen? Jagr? Well – at the moment – Calgary, Calgary, and Philly.

Who’s this Jankowski you ask? He is a college player, Stanstead College, in Quebec. Although his 53 goals and 93 points in 57 games sounds impressive, remember that is collegiate hockey. Which is way different than the CHL.

“This guy is a long way away. This guy is raw. We want to make sure we handle his development properly. Whether its two years or three years or four years, that when he gets here he’s ready to go and we’ll play that as it comes.” – Flames Assistant General Manager of Player Personnel, John Weisbrod.

The Flames did make one deals, they traded their first round pick (14th overall) to the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Buffalo’s first round pick (21st overall) and Buffalo’s second round pick (42nd overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

I can’t see how that is a bad deal. I guess we’ll know when we see how good Buffalo’s 14th pick turns out to be. Remember this name: Zemgus Girgensons. That is a real name.

If you’re interested, the biggest move of the day involved the host organization, as the Pittsburgh Penguins traded Jordan Staal to the Carolina Hurricanes for Brandon Sutter, the No. 8 pick in the 2012 draft and defense prospect Brian Dumoulin.
