MINNEAPOLIS -- Greetings from Minnesota. Just wanted to add one more name to today's draft story. Grand Island's Larry Smith, who plays for Sioux City of the United States Hockey League, is the 196th-ranked North American skater, according to NHL Central Scouting. He could be in line for a late-round selection.
He was originally not in today's story about local draft prospects, but through the magic of the Internet he is now.
