2011 NHL Draft Results: St. Louis Blues No-Shows In Draft's First Round

The St. Louis Blues weren’t a part of the festivities Friday night during the first round of the 2011 NHL Draft; they traded their pick in midseason as part of the major trade with the Colorado Avalanche that swapped former number-two overall Erik Johnson for high-scorer Chris Stewart. The Blues will be in action Saturday, where they’ll be able to use their three second-round picks to try to make up for their lack of first-round talent.

The Blues will pick second—32nd overall—thanks to their half of the draft-pick swap, in which their first-rounder went to Colorado in exchange for Colorado’s second-rounder; then they’ll get their own second-round pick, 41st overall, before ending with the 46th pick, which they got from Buffalo in the Brad Boyes deal.

Check out our St. Louis Blues draft preview for analysis of the Blues’ needs and wants on day two of the 2011 NHL Draft, and follow along on this storystream and at St. Louis Game Time for all the latest draft results and reaction.
