A look at the defensemen available for the 2011 World Junior tournament.
From this L.A. Times article Projected top NHL draft picks (left to right) Cam Fowler, Tyler Seguin, Taylor Hall, Emerson Etem and Brett Connolly pose during an event in Hollywood on Wednesday. (Maury Phillips / Getty Images / June 24, 2010) I just realized why both Cam Fowler and Emerson Etem dropped so far in the draft... Just look at the shirts those two are wearing.
With the twelfth overall pick, the Ducks selected Windsor defenseman Cam Fowler. And while Sleek was hanging in the back of this crowd talking shop with Steve Carroll, our own Tyler Bleszenski was fighting through the media horde to get us this video of his post-selection interview. Halfway through, you can hear a roar from the Staples Center crowd as it's announced that the Kings are trading up to pick #15 (defenseman Derek Forbort). Go Blez.
