During the 2013 NHL Draft today at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, the St. Louis Blues have a total of six draft selections. Will the St. Louis Blues make any last-minute trades or choose to keep their six draft picks? Will the new prospects drafted this afternoon prove to be the next NHL stars?
In Round 2, the Blues acquired pick number 47 from the Ottawa Senators when they traded goaltender, Ben Bishop.
In Round 3, the Blues have pick number 83.
In Round 4, the Blues have pick number 94, due to their trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning for Right Wing, B.J. Crombeen. In addition, they have pick number 113.
The Blues do not have a pick in Round 5; however, they do have a Round 6 pick number 173.
In Round 7, the Blues have pick number 203.
No matter what choices are made during the draft today by the St. Louis Blues, I hope our selections will lead to an even stronger, focused and talented group as they improve their skills and mature into the star players that are necessary to move to the top-level of the NHL.
