With the 113th pick, the Blues selected speedy forward Tomas Mrsic. Using their own 4th-round pick, the Blues chose their third forward in a row in Mrsic.

The St. Louis Blues continue to be busy in the 2024 NHL Draft

EliteProspects describe Mrsic as ‘’A deep, fully loaded stride launches Mrsic up the rink and past opponents. He’s usually using his speed to split the defence and take the return pass for a chance. He has a great shot. Every release is packed with deception, whether he’s hiding his blade or changing the angle at lightning speed.’’ EliteProspects

When looking at his stats, you will be impressed, and with merit. The smaller-frame winger from Surrey is a dynamic player. Last season with Medicine Hat, he accumulated 23 goals and 39 assists for 62 points in only 63 games played. For a fourth-round pick, this is outstanding.

Mrsic produced at this level despite not having a great start to the season. Before the draft, Mrsic said in an interview with Medicine Hat News: "I didn’t have the best start, but I think in the second half, I kind of climbed the rankings quite a bit, and I was pretty happy with my second half."

St. Louis Blues: Tomas Mrsic will have to develop his skills and earn his spot on a future roster

As a fit with the team, Mrsic will add some much-needed depth to the forward pool of the St. Louis Blues. His speed, skill, and scoring potential will be valuable assets as he develops within the organization. Additionally, his dynamic playing style and ability to generate offensive opportunities will complement the team's existing lineup. The Blues hope that with proper development, Mrsic can become a significant contributor at the NHL level, providing energy and offense from the wing.
