The Dallas Stars will now have two first round picks in this summer’s NHL Draft thanks to that trade that sent Jaromir Jagr to the Boston Bruins.
The Stars acquired prospects Lane MacDermid and Cody Payne in the deal along with a conditional second round pick in 2013, which would turn into a first round pick if the Bruins won two rounds in this year’s playoffs. Well, the Bruins did that Saturday night, defeating the New York Rangers to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals where they’ll take on the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Stars have the 10th overall selection in the first round of the draft. The pick from Boston will fall somewhere between the 27th and 30th overall. Exactly where will depend on how the Bruins fare in the rest of the playoffs.
The Stars have ten picks in this year’s draft, including an extra second pick they acquired in the deal that sent Derek Roy to the Vancouver Canucks.
Here’s a look at the picks.
|1st||Dallas (10th overall) + Boston (Jaromir Jagr trade)|
|2nd||Dallas + Vancouver (Derek Roy trade)|
|3rd||Edmonton (Mark Fistric trade)|
|5th||Dallas + Pittsburgh (Brenden Morrow trade)|
