The Carolina Hurricanes finished up on Saturday with three picks in the last two rounds.

In the sixth round at number 156 overall, they drafted defenseman, Jake Massie.  The Montreal native had 20 points in 34 games in high school last year.

The ISS had him ranked at 133 and the CSS rated him the 80th best skater in North America.

Another interesting pick is David Cotton, who was selected later in the sixth round at number 169.  Cotton is unique in that he is from Texas and started skating as a two-year-old, when the Stars won the Cup.

He had 27 goals and 42 assists in 33 games last year at Cushing Academy.

The Canes closed out their draft by selecting forward, Steven Lorentz at number 186 in the seventh round.  Lorentz is a 19-year-old "late-bloomer" who is now listed at 6'3 and has been playing for Peterborough the past two seasons.
