Mentioned him in my draft preview in Friday's paper as one of several forwards who might be avail in third round.
So at No. 85, it's Keegan Iverson, Center. Six-foot, 215-pound Minnesota native was 22-20-42 in 67 games for the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL. Models game after Jarome Iginla.

Brandon Halverson, 18 is a 6-4 goalie---born in Michigan--- who was 12-6-1 with a 2.96 GAA for Sault Ste. Marie of the OHL. Possible No. 1 down the road. Highest goalie drafted since Antoine LaFleur in 2nd round in 2007.

As part of the continuing post-Tortorella shakeup in Vancouver---headed by GM Jim Benning and new coach Willie Desjardins---Derek Dorsett was shipped to Vancover today for a third-round draft pick.
The pick (No. 85) is the one acquired by the Canucks earlier today in their trade of Ryan Kesler to Anaheim.
The Canucks apparently inquired about Dorsett recently; Dorsett played for ...Read more »
Greetings from Philadelphia, about five hours away from the start of the draft:
Now that Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler is going to Ducks for Nick Bonino, Luca Sbisa and the 24th overall pick in the draft, expect some movement from Western teams to play catchup and maybe more coming from Canucks new GM Jim Benning. Not sure Rangers have a trade partner there, though.

Tampa used a compliance buyout on Ryan Malone (who carried a $4.5-million cap charge and was busted for DUI and cocaine possession in April) and gives the dough and space to Ryan Callahan.
Callahan, 29, obviously wanted stability and his deal reportedly includes a full no-move for four years and partial no-trade for two, which is not something that the Rangers could live with.
He’s not...Read more »

Rangers released these statements:
“Tough last few days ... I loved being a Ranger and living in New York and playing at MSG in front of great fans. I've met many new friends, excellent teammates and staff and I have memories that I will cherish for a lifetime. Glen Sather, the management and owner, Mr. Dolan, are all class acts. I want to thank them for letting...Read more »
I doubt you've seen the last of Brad Richards.
The 34-year-old center (or even left winger), now an ex-Ranger after his long-expected buyout was confirmed by Newsday a few hours ago, certainly wants to keep playing. But where exactly that will be -- and at what discount -- is somewhat out of his control as a free agent on July 1.
To be clear, Richards can still put up some numbers, just...Read more »
