Los Angeles, CA.  The Carolina Hurricanes wanted defensemen and they got defensemen on Saturday.  After selecting blueliners Justin Faulk and Mark Alt in the second round, they went right back at it and opened their third round by choosing Danny Biega with the 67th overall pick. 

The well-spoken, bi-lingual blueliner is now attending Harvard and plans to return next season.  But after graduating, which could be in two years or three years, he has every intention of playing hockey in the NHL.  

The Montreal native is known to be a fast skater and takes pride in "getting to the puck first". 

Tony MacDonald was very pleased with the pick because Biega was one of the top conditioned players at the Draft Combine.  "He's a very well-trained athlete," the Hurricanes Director of Scouting said. 

The ISS had him ranked at number 50 in the draft and the CSS had him as the 31st best North American skater, so it looks like they selected him at a good spot here.
