Second pick: Tyler II

With their second pick in the first round (No. 26 overall from San Jose in the Brian Campbell trade), the Sabres went for Medicine Hat forward Tyler Ennis, who is 5-8 and says he patterns his game after Daniel Briere and Martin St. Louis. Here's a good note: His favorite food to cook is chicken wings. Here's his draft profile.

Goaltender Thomas McCollum, the Sanborn native, was still on the board when the Sabres picked. But with Jhonas Enroth signed, it didn't seem to be too logical a choice to go with a goaltender. And what kind of message would a choice like that have sent about upcoming negotiations with Ryan Miller?

10:55 p.m. update: McCollum just got chosen by Detroit with the final pick of the first round. The Wings are grooming hot prospect Jimmy Howard to play with Chris Osgood so McCollum will have plenty of time to develop in junior and the minors.

Here's Ennis' draft video.
