The St. Louis Blues Select Teemu Eronen With The 192nd Pick

With their final pick of the 2011 draft, the St. Louis Blues selected Teemu Eronen of Jokerit Helsinki. Eronen is a large defenseman that needs some development, but at 5'10" and 185 lbs, you can't expect him to be a huge towering hulk, even after maturity. He's a mild offensive threat, good on the powerplay, and he can set up goals as well. He had 11 assists in 48 games last season with Jokerit.

As an aside, former Blues drafting guru Jarmo Kekalainen is now the General Manager of Jokerit. Draw your own conclusions from that.

Buried in here (shield your eyes from the massive amount of ads and try to translate the Finnish) is a fairly sweet goal from the blueline by Eronen:
