NHL Draft Results: Sven Bartschi Selected By The Calgary Flames

With the 13th pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, the Calgary Flames select Sven Bartschi, a left winger from the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League.

He's a big goal scorer in the WHL, and he put up 34 goals and 85 points in 66 games with Portland in 2010-11. He's not a very big player, and that's perhaps the only knock against him, as he doesn't couple his small 5'11" size with fantastic speed like some other young players do.

But Bartschi makes up for it all with his offensive talent, and he's one of the most dangerous players with the puck that you'll find in the Canadian Major Junior ranks.
