The St. Louis Blues Select Jordan Binnington With The 88th Pick

Adding to their goaltender depth with the 88th pick, the Blues drafted Jordan Binnington of the Owen Sound Attack. He has a lot of development ahead of him (his stats read him weighing 156 lbs at 6'1", so he's a stringbean in pads) but he's also got a huge skill set to work with. He was named the Most Outstanding Goaltender of the 2011 Memorial Cup, posting a 1.42GAA and a .951 SV% in that series. During the regular season he had a 3.05 GAA and a .899 SV% with a record of 27-12-1-4. According to his NHL.com bio, he's interested in Ultimate Fighting, presumably to clear his own crease when defensemen let him down.
