St. Paul, MN The Carolina Hurricanes looked to Sweden to find their first forward in this year's draft and selected Victor Rask with the 42nd overall pick. Rask was ranked at number 26 by the ISS and is one of the top players in Sweden in his age group.
The forward was surprised he was picked by the Canes, but was not expecting to go to anyone in particular. His dream is to play in the NHL, although he said that he will play in Sweden next season.
We will have more about Rask a bit later.
