Los Angeles, CA  According to the ISS, the Carolina Hurricanes went off the board a bit with their opening second round draft pick when they chose Justin Faulk, but Jim Rutherford was very pleased to get him.  Faulk, a defenseman who scored 21 goals in the USHL last season, was ranked lower by some services, but not so by the Hurricanes. 

The 6'0 blueliner has a quick release and heavy shot.  He was a bit surprised to be picked by the Canes but was very pleased and hopes to make an impression this camp.

Here is more information about Faulk from the Western College Hockey Blog.
