Funny thing you should mention that.

Watching the coverage on Saturday morning, and I made the declaration that Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen would be selected by London.

He can't. He's a goalie.

We seem to like taking players from Finland. Then again, the last three from there we have chosen (Maataa, Juolevi, Kuokkanen), I think we did OK.

How about a bold prediction?

Joni Ikonen. Selected 2nd round by Montreal.

Centreman. Do we need anymore forwards?

OR.....

Filip Westerlund. Selected 2nd round by Arizona.

Defenceman. Who knows?

Some talk yesterday about the Knights taking Timothy Liljegren. He's a D man from Sweden, taken 17th overall by the Leafs in the draft this past weekend. Might just be speculation due to the Hunter connection but I can't say i'd hate the move though it would certainly warrant more trolls posting on the board citing collusion lol.

At the draft, it was said that the only reason that Liljegren slid down to 17th was that he had Mono and did not have a great showing after he recovered from it.

A few names I recognize from the draft:

Filip Chytil = selected 7th overall by North Bay. 1st round pick of the NY Rangers.
Martin Necas = selected 10th overall by Saginaw. 1st round pick of Carolina.

The aforementioned Timothy Liljegren.

Joni Ikonen was selected 28th overall by Hamilton. So. hopefully, I'll get to see another Habs prospect.

Albert Michnac was selected 37th overall by Mississauga. I was thinking...that last name sounds so familiar.
It is. He played for Guelph last year.

Lethbridge picks next...then us! Stay tuned.

London selects Jesper Bratt, a left winger from Sveden.

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdis ... pid=180836

6th round pick of New Jersey in 2016.

'98 birth, so he is likely an one-and-done.

What a surprise - 5'9" 170 lbs. Knights have a dislike
for forwards over 6'0"? .... lol. Hope the kid works
out as well as Kuokannen did.

With their 2nd round selection, the Knights selected Adam Boqvist - a defenceman, who is also from Sveden.

http://chl.ca/prospects/2017/181957833

2000 birth, so should he get drafted to the NHL, he would still have to play CHL.

I have no real proof for my case but I think that Boqvist might be a long shot. He's ranked really high for the 2018 draft, inside the top 10 by lists I've seen.

Bratt I believe has already committed to London.

Boqvist's agent just confirmed that he will not be coming to London this year.
