The St. Louis Blues Select Demitrij Jaskin With The 41st Pick

The Blues added another European prospect in Demitrij Jaskin. He is from Omsk, like Blues defenseman Nikita Nikitin, but has played for the Czech  U-18 team. At least year's U18 World Junior Championships, he scored four goals and an assist in six games. He also has 59 goals and 56 assists in 102 U18 games played in the Czech Republic. 

He was drafted 1st overall in the KHL 2010 draft by Sibir Novosibirsk, and was drafted 60th overall by the Calgary Hitmen that same season.

He obviously has a scoring touch, as evidenced in this hat trick against the Russian team:


At 6-3, 198 pounds, this right winger will give them holy hell if he decides to play in Peoria this year. He's already NHL sized.
