From Stanley Cup of Chowder:

The #1 rule of drafting is to take the best player available. The buzz about the Bruins' second pick in the draft is that they are targeting a defenseman, but with most the draft's premier blueliners already off the board in the mock draft I went with the best player still in the stands. The 6'0" 190 lb right winger played his junior hockey with the Medicine Hat Tigers of the WHL, where he posted 37-28-65 totals in 72 games. He is ranked 8th among North American skaters by Central Scouting.

Etem grew up in the "hockey hot bed" of Long Beach, CA, where he learned to the game by playing roller hockey before taking his game to the ice. Etem attended Shattuck-St Mary's in Minnesota, a prep school that is known for churning out NHL players. Some of the school's alumni include Sidney Crosby, Zach Parise, Jonathan Toews, Jack Johnson, Ty Conklin, Joe Corvo, Patrick Eaves, Ryan Malone, Kyle Okposo, and Drew Stafford.

That's it for today's picks. Three more tomorrow.
