a high pick in the Euro draft once or twice. Hope he isn't to good though. The Canes took a Swede D-man who is said to be excited to get over here and play.

Neither of us are that happy with the selection - could this be the beginning of the end for Kisio?

This is a translation from a Swedish sports site that Barb found yesterday:

"CHL is not an option"


Rask drafted-but do not want to Canada


Victor Rask was drafted as a third player in CHL's importdraft on Wednesday afternoon. But it is unlikely that he plays there. Instead, he aims to take place in Carolina's organization.
"We were clear that there is no alternative," said agent Claes Elefalk on Calgary Hitmens calls to drafta Victor Rask.


Victor Rask broke his contract with Leksand early in april and it has always declared that he has finished a new Swedish Club.


But the new Club has not been presented yet.


-Victor has had close contact with the Elitserien Club here at home, but his desire has been to wait for the NHL, see which team will tingar him and hear what they have to say, says agent Claes Elefalk to hockeysverige .se.


At the time it took for Rask be presented by the Club in question has started a lot of rumors that he would be on his way to Canada and play in any of the CHL-leagues. Something that was reinforced on Wednesday when he was drafted as a third player of the Calgary Hitmen, the club where Fredrik Sjöström, Fredrik Pettersson and Robin Figren played.


But any game in the WHL for Calgary seems apparently not become. It shoots Elefalk down directly.


-We were very surprised that the Victor was in draften, and perhaps especially that Calgary tingade him. They heard from us for a while ago and wondered if Victor was interested in playing in junior hockey in Canada, but it was clear that there is no alternative. But each year it is few CHL-clubs did and hope for the best when the tingar player.


Instead, Victor Rask investing vigorously in the process of concluding in Carolina's organization


-Since we had a draften lot of conversations with Carolina and including Jim Rutherford and believe very much on Victor. As it stands now, can he be sajnas soon and have a fair chance to settle into the first team during the camp. Carolina believe he already coming season could be ready for some playing time in the NHL.


-, He would not take a regular location, it may be that he spends a year in the AHL instead.
